However, why anyone would think that someone else should sort her problem out for her is a true mystery to me.
I don't think anyone has suggested that he has an obligation to help her out - just that you'd think it would be the first thing that a loving partner would offer to do. Judas Priest - if I was as rich as Freeman - I'd help a FRIEND out of a tight spot - let along a long-term partner who was mother to my children. I think most people would. I don't know - maybe he HAS offered to help but she's declined his kind offer and possibly said 'no need darling - the taxpayer will pick up the tab'.
