Marguerite's betrayal of the family was thoughtless; she was angry at the family for St. Cyr's treatment of her brother and she repeated something she'd heard. What she did was the senseless act of a young woman, but it caused the execution of the entire family. Her betrayal caused an irrepairable breach to her marriage, and she was horrified at what she had done.
