Uprooting teenage girls sounds cruel, but I'm not qualified to have
an opinion on that.
Yes, I did wonder about that as I wrote. I don't think we know enough to
judge how good an idea this is, like how old they are, or whether they
speak English, or how the Bulgarian school system works, or how long
Lexi plans to stay.
If she is going to fail to get pregnant in the next few weeks and tell
Roy that it is over, then Lexi doesn't really need a job at Lower Loxley
or The Bull, and there is no reason to uproot the girls. If she wants to
marry Roy and live with him, then either the girls don't see much of
their mum, or Roy goes there and doesn't see his daughters much, or the
girls come here. It is a question of which is the least bad option.
I agree. The way she's acting towards Roy doesn't make it sound as if
she's planning to marry him though. It sounds much more as if she's
planning to dump him, while staying in the UK, but needs to work out the
logistics, such as getting a job and somewhere to live first.
Even if she's only planning to be over here for a year or so, while
producing Adam and Ian's baby, she might feel that bringing her
daughters over here was the better option. Not knowing much about the
Bulgarian school system nor about exactly how old her daughters are,
it's hard to guess whether I'd agree with her.
