I imagine some would say a man who lives that long, has a
right to decide his own fate; but what about taking his wife
with him? Certainly wrong, I'd say. She probably had different
ideas, regarding her end.
After the abduction & murder of my young cousin last year,
I've been more keenly aware of this rising phenomenon, of
murder/suicide; as my cousin's murderer took his own life,
after he was finished with her. He was 63, my cousin was 21.
The saddest, most tragic story in my life so far...
Call it selfish, or evil, or spiteful, or mental; but whatever it is,
these acts only deteriorate our collective human soul, in my
op. What do you think causes this behavior? Is it the moral
breakdown of society, in general? Or more of an isolated, (but
ever increasing) individual breakdown of the ability to cope
with personal problems, and stress?
