I don't understand why they couldn't have always been honest about being a writing team. The husband, at least at the beginning, would come up with the theme of the story. He had the ideas. Then the wife would breathe life into the story with her characters and attention to detail. Why they would let it get to the point of only one person getting all the recognition was shortsighted. Obviously, it would lead to resentment and anger. This is not like that movie about the lady who made the big eyed paintings but let her husband take the credit. The wife did all the work. That was not how it was in this case, though. They needed each other. Neither of these people would have been famous without the other.
