The Pearl

Why did Kino and Juana walk back to La Paz side by side instead of in a straight line?

Please help!

The two were returning after losing their son. Through Coyotito's death they had reached a new plateau; Kino deferred to her and didn't require her subservience. Regardless, he offers Juana the pearl to discard and she moves back into the role of wife. Public forgiveness? Probably.
