    Some more people with no resolution skills. What a way to exit this life. Took the demented person 53 years to get the courage? or a Bottle of Jack Daniels.

      I think the problem goes much deeper than just a lack of resolution skills and is probably related more to a lack of moral compass. My wife and I have never been able to resolve any of our differences after 27 years but I would still never hurt her or my children. I like to think that there is still more good in the world than bad but sometimes I’m not sure. It certainly seems like the playing field is evening out.

    Had they just made love instead,
    all that tension and bad feelings may have subsided .

    Or maybe not.

    They SHOULOD HAVE TALKED ABOUT WHAT EVER WAS WRONG BECAUSE 2 WRONG DOES NOT MAKE A RIGHT. ROBERT FROM CT.

    There may have been no differences at all between them. Perhaps he lost his job and it was going to cause them to suffer terribly. Maybe they had a pact for financial reasons. Having dealt with a suicide of a family member, one will never have the reasons why.
