Jackie does not have a stable grasp of the current reality. This also shows Jackie’s position in the family: equal to her children, meaning she has no power within it—she has no role.

Her unsuccessful and violent father moved the family many times, and her older brother was favored by her grandfathers’ will. By growing up in this type of household, she thought that marriage life was dangerous for women.
