The man held out a stubborn hope that there could somewhere be a refuge or salvation left in the world. The wife points out that all they have seen since the apocalypse was the end of humanity. What is left is the remenence of mans' diseased soul. Mankind is a cancer in its last stages of malignancy. The wife would kill herself and her child rather than wait to be beaten, raped, and eaten by the savages that remain.
