Why does George have to give up the idea of the dream farm once Lennie kills Curle's wife? was the farm ever a real possibilty?

Lennie was an integral part of George's dream of the farm. The farm represented a place of belonging and home. Lennie was very much a part of how George interpreted this stability. Once Lennie is dead, the dream dies as well. We would like to think the farm was a real possibility but Steinbeck's world seems to suggest otherwise. The tone and atmosphere of the story does not have the room for hope and dreams to come true. We see this when Crooks changes his mind about joining them.
