To Kathy he says, “I don’t think that your son has hooked up here with some wild-eyed bipolar out-of-control witch. I think she has good intent.

You should today, you should tomorrow and you should for the rest of your life,” he says. “There’s no choice to be made here. You love your mother 100% and you can love your wife 100%.
