Actually, Lureen suddenly reminds me of Ariadne. Presumably her marriage starts off at least sort-of good, and she ends up more-or-less abandoned by her husband. She might not really be abandoned before Jack's death, but clearly he isn't "there" for her. So I guess that's a kind of emotional abandonment.
Very interesting. Must read up about Ariadne. As the spouse of Dionysus, that seems pretty exciting!
What I was actually thinking re: Ariadne was how she helped Theseus, and then he abandoned her. It made me think how Jack turned to Lureen to assuage his loneliness, but ultimately that didn't work and he (emotionally) abandoned her.
Maybe Lureen remarried after Jack's death. With that farm equipment business, I'm sure the Widow Twist was a catch.
