Sparks flew as the couple fought about sex, money struggles, future goals and business decisions. Cynthia’s sister Mal, who made an unannounced visit and declared she would be staying at Cynthia and Peter’s home for two months, seemed to be the crux of the argument.
Peter was livid and declared he could not share the same residence with his sister-in-law for two months. He strongly urged Cynthia to allow him to temporarily move into his own man cave and Cynthia was not hearing any of it.
According to Cynthia’s Bravo blog:
“Next, I attempt to talk to Peter about husband/wife stuff — finances, goals, business, and our sex life. Um, that didn’t go too well. Did he really suggest getting a man cave across town? I am just going to cough that up to early signs of dementia. Clearly, he must be losing his damn mind!”
“Last but not least, I have a very big problem with the way Peter communicates when he is upset. He wants to get all loud and throw around a couple of his choice curse words. I am a communicator, and this drives me crazy. I am all for a good drag out argument every now and then, but the person that talks the loudest and uses the most curse words is not necessarily the winner of the argument. Therefore, I refused to turn up on him (let’s be clear, we all can get loud and cuss when we want to), because I think it’s just a dumb way to try to have an effective conversation. Keep us in your prayers!”
