This has to be a joke. I was completely in agreement with everything until he said the solution is taking away the guns. What a joke. Obviously that is not the solution. The solution is to change the divorce laws so men who are divorced are not strait up set in life. Think about it, really. If you have a wife and two kids and she says she wants to leave you, you are set. She is going to take half of everything you earned over the course of the marriage, she is going to get child support, alimony and she will get the kids. That is heavy. Putting someone in that situation is what causes suicide its the perfect storm. You go from being a father with a wife and kids to being a single dude living in an apartment crappier than the one you had when you were 18 with not option to retire realistically. Everything you worked for (during the best years of your life ) gone.
And she chooses when you get to see the kids.
Like really think about it. In Nevada it is 22% of whatever you earn in child support to your former spouse. We will assume the lowest tax bracket 10% (federal )so 32% of everything you earn is gone. Then don't forget alimony. How are you supposed to retire?
Wonder what % is due to divorce?
Nobodys stopping anyone because it's unconstitutional. I'm just curious of stories behind complete suicides.
No one cares until it's to late...
Only the women matter
Money solves problems.
Divorce = Destruction of the Family = Suicide
Yeah I'm probably going to shoot myself in the roof of my mouth one day. Life just keeps getting worse and worse.
We need to crush these men financial before we get them to die
What about the prospect of suffering due to chronic health conditions that will only get worse and lead to more suffering. Suicide ends their torment. These so called professionals are giving this advice because they are not in that horrific situation. 10 to 1 if they were, they too would contemplate suicide.
If we are being honest with ourselves we will see that all life is a shamble and the only thing that keeps us going are superficial things. I have a lot of respect for people that take an early exit. They are brave.
My sister hung herself at age 18. It’s the most horrible thing I have ever gone through. I feel like her pain became mine. Suicide is NOT the answer. It causes a lot of problems for the people who love them. A lot of people get caught up in their feelings in the moment, when they could feel entirely different a half an hour later. Such a shame so many people are losing lives due to suicide.
the housing crisis, wealth inequality, illegal drugs being cheaper than medicine, etc and well no one is happy
a permanent solution to a persistent problem
China has lowest suicide rate because of dumb individualism in the west.
People should wait until they are 50
Allah's guidance is the solution for your life
Suicide and mass shootings, just a couple of symptoms of a declining society
The problems of a suicidal person is not always a temporary problem. For non privileged people, it can be generational poverty/corporate greed preventing any hope for basic needs being met in ones lifetime and their kids lifetime/mental health corporation need to profit and show success to continue funding.
