Where did i say they are complicit? Knowing is not complicit, is it.
Anyway. Having thought a bit more. I do agree that there are some situations where the spouse will suffer hardship, like if her pedophile husband gets locked up. And she'll struggle without his premier league wages
But if you're talking Wayne & Waynetta and Waynes doing 15 for burgling my house. You think Waynetta deserves charity? I don't, because she knew dam well what would happen if Wayne got caught.
Yes, knowing does
mean complicit if the person who knows fails to report the crime. Are you suggesting that the people who receive support from Out There are themselves criminals because you 'reckon' they have conspired to conceal (including through silence) the crimes committed by their relatives?
