James Walker’s attorneys claimed that the Walkers’ troubles were caused by interference from Nina’s mother and sister. Do you believe this is true? Is it possible that Nina never forgave James for being absent when Elizabeth, their first child, was born? Did James’s absence make Nina more reliant on her mother and sister, thereby creating future marital problems? How involved should parents and siblings be in their loved ones’ marriages? Should people prioritize their loyalty to their spouses over their loyalty to their parents or siblings?
