“Do you know whether or not they had arguments on a regular basis?”

 

Beverly Neal

“They always have augments with each other. I always sit down and advise them that they cannot do that because they have two children with each other and they are together for seven years. So I told them that they ether leave each other or work it out for the two children.”
