What if she really did tell her husband that she would never want to live like this? I take no sides on the issue as I am sure I do not know all the facts and the entire situation is just tragic. But I know my husband and I have discussed things of this nature over the years, as well as how we wanted to be buried and the like. Spouses DO have conversations like that. What if she really did say it? What if living this way is a nightmare for her? There is no way to know, which is what makes it so impossible. I know if I were in her position, I would want my family to let me go.
I wonder if she told him she would not want him to have 2 basterds while still being married to her?
