WHY did she have such trouble supporting her kids?

Charlotte says she had a huge amount of trouble supporting her kids after her divorce. But wasn't she a registered nurse? They make a small fortune in most places!
And your money would go much farther in the '80s surely?!

Plus, she says that 'I'm sure nursing has changed'. Why not just take a refresher course?

"I'd say this cloud is Cumulo Nimbus."
"Didn't he discover America?"
"Penfold, shush."


My late mom and I saw the movie years ago. I agree, RN make a decent salary.
