Mary Maloney loved her husband so much that she killed him when he told her that he was leaving her for another woman. Everyday Mary was at home and waited for her dear husband to come home like usual. It was an evening like usual by she didn't know that he was going to tell her something that would completely change their lives forever. Her husband meant the world to her and she would have done anything for him. She couldn't live without him and now they were having a baby. She knew that it would be impossible for her to live with the baby by herself without her loving husband by her side to support her and help her go through difficult moments.

Marriage is a holy sacrament that should never be broken. People usually say vows that mean a lot but afterwards they can't keep their promise to love each other till death separates them.

It was morally wrong for Patrick Maloney to cheat to on his wife and now he was asking her for a divorce. He should be ashamed of himself because he knew that a child was going to be born and he wouldn't have his father and mother by his or her side. If Mary couldn't have him, no one else could. Mary shouldn't have killed him but she was in a state of shock as her wonderful world was completely falling apart. Everything that meant a lot to her was linked to that man and he was leaving her. It was something unbelievable for her and she couldn't handle it. Even though Patrick was murdered, he's the one to be blamed for that because if he hadn't cheated on her with another woman this would have never happened. He actually caused his own death as he knew he was playing with fire.

Lying to the cops was wrong but she had to it or else her baby could have been killed. Now that her husband was gone, the only thing that really counted in her life was her unborn child. She had to protect him at all cost. She should have tried to talk to him about it and maybe they would have been able to solve the problem in their marriage. Violence is never the best way to solve problems. Even though she had talked to him, it would have been nearly impossible to change his mind. He loved another woman and that woman loved him back so Mary didn't count anymore. He only saw her as the mother of his child and nothing more. For him, saving their marriage was something useless and pointless. He didn't think that Mary loved him so dearly and that she wouldn't have been able handle the situation. Mary should feel guilty for her act but in a way she's a victim of Patrick's unfaithfulness towards her. She never thought that maybe the person she loved so much didn't really feel the same way about her anymore. Mary Maloney should be punished for her act but she shouldn't be sent to prison as she didn't plan to kill her husband. The idea of her lover leaving her for someone else completely stunned her and she killed him without really realizing what was happening.
