    Alix thinks that life is simple- statement 1: Joan should be happy because she has wonderful Max. 2. Life isn’t complicated, and so Joan should have foreseen that she would be abandoned and therefore Max should not exist. Their mother’s life got complicated when her husband died, if she had not been educated and able to work (and at first she apparently wasn’t until Evie ran things until she could get out of bed) and they were needing assistance people would assume that Val knowingly made a bad choice to have kids without a dad and other security until proven otherwise

    We never found out Max’s origins other than that joan was married and didn’t know her husband would leave. We blame women, en masse, when husbands die, factories move, the antibiotic/Pill thing wasn’t explained well (Max was conceived over 30 years ago!) and life becomes as complicated as Holly recognizes. And think… the cute baby Joan should be happy just for having by Alix’s logic should not exist by her logic

    Sure, all women know if their partner will die or bug out or that their job will move to Mexico because things aren’t complicated and things don’t happen- like happened to at least 2 of the 3 women living in that house

    You do realize you are blaming the 2 women in this strip for being single mothers when neither women and only one of the men chose not to be in a nuclear family in order to scapegoat the supposed women who supposedly got the problems they deserved

    Joan began her pregnancy married and thinking that she would have a partner. Val had her babies thinking that her husband would be there for her. One man didn’t even get to make the choice to help raise his offspring.

    I used a checkbook with carbon sheets so that I had an exact copy of what I wrote on the check, back when I used checks more than once a year

    Hmm, only other time I remember him being mad, it was off-screen and he was informing his sister that when a minor calls him and says he was left alone for 2 days with no notice, just a note and some cash, and asks to come stay with Wally, he is staying

    Um, if Joan doesn’t know then it probably predates her moving in. In other words, it may be something Wally has that he remembers a great-aunt using, or a plastic cup that Andy brought home from a special day that his aunt’s sister may not have heard about (I’m sure that if Evie was asked about grandchildren or Val about nieces and nephews they would include him or add “and Wally’s nephew, a wonderful young man who is a part of our family” but Val shouldn’t be tossing things in that house without at least a box for the older 2 guys to look through first)
