She also said she was dissatisfied with the relationship

If everyone who was dissatisfied with a relationship, at one time or another, did the same thing as this woman the population of this country would be cut by AT LEAST 30% I'd bet!

Wanna bet they let her our of the hospital right after she tried to kill herself ?

She was certainly in deep depression and had no help. A tragedy waiting to happen.

It's not the first time we see something like this.

I doubt she got her money back back by killing him.

" doubt she got her money back back by killing him."

that's right,.... but could not she have taken some LEGAL recourse to get her yens back, oh snap, probably cost a lot of yens to do so.....or the j systems may be mega-futile. in that regard....

If your current partner is somewhat off or has a strange behavioral patterns, I'd say run away & don't look back or pretend you had an insomnia.

Freeloader's love for money is unconditional.

My point is, if there was a system so someone who attempted suicide is not let out immediately, but is sent to psychiatric consultation instead, maybe this could have been avoided. Therefore the boyfriend would be alive, and she wouldn't have to go to jail.

Well, at least they hadn't got round to having kids, so they could ruin even more lives.

The LOVE OF money is the root of all evil. She loved her money more than she loved him obviously.

Love and hate, beyond that to kill or be killed or better get away from that!

Maybe it was the money that kept him around in the first place

This is EXACTLY why I don't mix money with relationships. I always say that!

One body goes to the grave and one body goes to prison ... Wasted youth ... Moral of this story is - He'll never borrow money again ...
