    I thought that when Swmc made her post.
    But wouldnt that be an embarassing secret
    rather than a dark one.??
    Ive been waiting for someone to post my
    other idea!!

    That was suggested early on when story was
    first mooted and would be a dark secret and
    make a link.to Roy.

    I did also wonder about the money aspect and
    thought she might have a problem with dyslexia
    and so cant read the bills etc.
    ( which is an important issue) but theyve already
    bodged that one with Tim.

    So then I thought her husband has probably
    been ill for some time and they were probably on
    benefits and is she concealing his death to
    continue receiving them. You do read of
    such cases which have gone on for years.

    She doesnt seem to have a job and most
    employers insist on paying wages into
    bank account now. I presume character
    in her 50s- I suppose its still possible that
    they may be some who leave all money
    matters to husband-but much less likely than
    in previous generations . How did she pay for
    funeral -cost many thousands now?
    Perhaps not had one- but that would be too
    dark for Corrie surely !!

    I dont remember any mention of her having
    any children to help her

    its probably more likely that she has let the house go and has'nt paid the bills etc. i remember when my Dad died everything my mum received stopped and if she did not have grown up kids she would not have had money to get a pint of milk!

    Thats the most likely reason -as its Corrie-
    and pendantic Roy would be good at dealing
    with officialdom.! on her behalf.

    Your mum was fortunate to have you and your
    siblings to help.Most people have someone.
    But so far it doesnt seem from what we know
    that this lady has.

    Bills arent really a "dark" secret- tho distressing
    and stressful.
    The secret may be something no one has
    thought of yet!

    If she didnt inform authorities about husbands
    death- money wouldnt stop until a periodic
    check revealed the truth or she may have
    managed to continue deception.

    When such cases are in the news -it is as
    often panic as much as dishonesty that
    causes the initial deception.

    We will find out the dark secret in due course.
    Its interesting now and again to have a story
    line thats not predictable but does happen in
    real life.!
