Alice smokes a cigarette while talking about SanDral, her now husband, and his upcoming jail time for a DUI. Since SanDral received his third DUI, it has put significant strain on Alice and SanDral's relationship. "It's been so stressful," Alice explains, "You don't know what's going to happen, you don't know anything."
Alice says that SanDral was the first man she completely opened up to. Her bad experience with men started at a young age. Since then, she hasn't been in a healthy relationship. "They hurt me, I was hurt many times," she says, "But SanDral's a very lovable man, he's got a good heart, he means well."
SanDral drinks regularly. He blames it on stress and pain. "It can lower my inhibition so I don't worry so much. When I'm sober I worry all the time."
"I don't always show it, but I stress about it a lot," SanDral explains about his DUI, "And I think about what if I just stayed at home."
Alice prides herself on being "old fashion" when it comes to gender roles in the household. Not able to work due to health problems, she does most of the domestic duties around the house like cooking meals and cleaning. The money she collects from Social Security Disability Insurance every month is most of what they live off of.
A security camera in the couple's bedroom keeps watch over appliances and lawnmowers in the backyard. SanDral makes money by scrapping, as well as small mechanic jobs.
Alice plays with her great grandson. Since SanDral went to jail she has been spending more time with family.
Alice talks to SanDral weeks into his jail sentence. SanDral tries to call her every night, and their talks are mostly either filled with romantic sentiment or bickering.
