He tells her, truthfully, about how he felt when she concerned herself with his attire at their son’s funeral, opening the line of communication that is unfortunately unreceived. However, he makes the fatal mistake of running from his problems with Beth that may have been capable of being saved when he cries in the kitchen late at night, telling Beth that he does not think he loves her anymore because of her recent actions. This is an example of Calvin’s flight mode, contrasted by the fight that he produces at golf with Beth and her brother. He fights her on being so unwilling to be around Calvin as they discussed another vacation. These two things could have been solved, like Conrad, by assuring the value of the relationship to create safety and admitting the mutual purpose of staying together and properly raising their broken
