Perhaps they are not stupid. Perhaps they both have, to a greater or lesser extent, learning difficulties that are not fully understood and therefor are misjudged as being fully functioning people. Pehaps with some adult intervention and learning support they may be able to work out a better solution? It might be that lack of formal education, given that someone is suggesting them isolated in midwest, and the missed opportunities for an educator to either develop their skills or recognise their personal difficulties has led to a complete misjudgement of their social competency.
