When things go terribly wrong in a relationship, often words are said or actions taken that the person later regrets.
Paula had been very upset at Greg.
It all started when he brought home the new boat. This made Paula bristle. She thought they couldn’t afford it. They couldn’t afford her a new car.

Upset, and wanting to take the macho crew down a notch, she decided to make a place for herself that they would never dare enter. It was her house too, darn it!
