Alice and Paul’s evening out starts to go badly wrong. Why is Paul reluctant to talk about Lucy?

Alice:Paul, you’re so naive sometimes.
Paul:I’m more realistic than you think I am Alice.
Paul:It’s just that Lucy’s having second thoughts about the divorce.
Alice:Well it’s too late now to change her mind. You did tell her that?
Paul:Not exactly.
Alice:Not exactly? You’re not thinking about getting back together with her?
Paul:Well she asked me to reconsider. She said we’d had a trial separation before and maybe now it was time to think about a trial living together period; see if we could be a family again.
Paul:We’re trying to make our marriage work. It was a real one, Alice, with two lovely kids. It’s them I’m thinking about.
Alice:But what about us?
