Oooh, so sad. To see this. I saw Jenny all set up for a fairy-tale life and then it seemed to come crashing down on her. Your last paragraph was the best, it really packed a good bunch of common sense. Thanks for sharing! ^_^
You presented a sad, but true, example of some mothers, (thankfully, not all), and, at the same time, you showed a father who had the attributes of a great mother. She lost so much, and he gained it all.
It is sad but I know of several life examples where mothers caved under the challenge of the position. In three of those instances the women just walked out one day and went on their not so merry way. You have done a splendid job of of portraying such tragedy. You wove this story with skill and imagination, and wound it up it with the real deal. Great job!
