    We are dealing with a fool who kills his wife because of his friend and turns around and kills his friend because of his wife. We easily assume that just like he saved a people in order to save his wife, he can kill a people in order to kill his wife. So she probably didn't want to anger him. – user6591 Mar 12 '17 at 21:41
