Rachel slams the door and shouts she’s staying with her parents. Rex yells it was a mistake being with her. He calls his dad and says the marriage is not working. His dad tells him it’s only been three months and he has to actually work at it. Rex sighs as he hangs up the phone. He looks through the phone book for some divorce lawyers.

Rachel blows her nose into a tissue and tells her mom that he can be so mean to her sometimes. He doesn’t want to do anything. She whispers that they haven’t had sex since the first month they were married and that it just stopped. Rachel’s mom pats her shoulder and tells her she can stay for as long as she wants. Her father gives her a hug and says they can get an annulment. Rachel says she needs to think about it. She still loves him but she can’t live with him. Her father tells her to give herself some time before making any decisions.

Back at home, Rachel says she wants to go to school. Her parents have offered to pay for it. Rex shrugs and says she can do whatever she wants. Rachel wants to know if he even cares anymore and slaps him in the face. He says he cares more than she could ever know and kisses her.

In bed, she touches her stomach and hopes a baby in there. He kisses her on the forehead and apologizes for being a jerk. He wants to be with her forever. She says they are going to be one of those cute couples in their 80s, helping each other walk. He laughs and says they’ll be riding off on their motorcycle.
