His reaction made Kristine felt that Keith only saw her as the replacement of his grandma. "It's almost sexist, and it bothers me. I feel like he wants me to be, like, this 1950s housewife," she revealed. "I have so much more going for myself, and this is all you focused on?"
Kristine, however, was later able to gain "a lot more empathy" for her husband after he told her that he had to be a parent to his dad, who wasn't there for him and that the space his mom and grandma made feel safe for him.

But she slowly changed her mind after her family explained to her the importance of communication. "I am learning that you have to compromise. I am going to listen to my husband … it might be hard at first," she said.
