Peter Kraus Tells Lindsay and Her Family That He Has Reservations About Getting Married
On several occasions, Kraus has said that his feelings are strong for Lindsay, but he’s appeared to not necessarily be ready for marriage. When it comes to his meeting Lindsay’s parents, the same issue arises as ABC reports:
Peter is the first man to meet Rachel’s family. Making up for lost time, he immediately tells her how he feels about her, and she is excited to introduce him to her family. Peter’s strong feelings for Rachel doesn’t stop him from explaining his reservations about getting married. Will Rachel’s mother appreciate his honesty, or is the end of the road near for this couple?
The couple’s overnight takes place on a vineyard in the Spanish countryside, but issues of Kraus’ commitment come up again. ABC writes that:
They discuss Peter’s reticence to get engaged. He is very clear that he is falling in love with her, but a proposal might be a tall order for him. The seriousness of the situation sinks in, and Rachel dissolves in tears.
This could definitely be a problem in the relationship.
Eric Bigger Confesses His Love for Lindsay
When Eric Bigger brought Lindsay home to meet his family, he revealed that he’d never brought a girl home. This added some pressure for Lindsay, but she seemed to get along quite well with his relatives. This week, it’s Bigger who gets along well with Lindsay’s family, though they wonder if he’s mature enough for a longtime commitment. Bigger confesses that he’s in love with Lindsay, but this is the first time he’s been in love.
