I don’t get where this both Mary and Joseph are flawed thing is coming from . No human being is saint, I know. But in terms of their relationship with their kids and their marriage the worse Mary has done is be spiteful which she has a right to be.
Joseph cheats on his wife, lets his kids play around deep in the woods unsupervised. Has shown multiple times that he is not aware of his kids’ whereabouts.
Mary is just an alcohol who could be labelled as neglectful but the only time this has been shown is with Crish but no one ever seems to know where he is.
I don’t see how they’re both equally guilty.
