Suicide over debt
« on: July 29, 2017, 02:56:17 AM »

Such a sad story- couple commits suicide over debts of about $250k. To feel like that is your only option is just awful. I mean, to a mustachian, this amount isn't insurmountable. So sad for their children

That's so awful, surely anything even going to jail is better than dying

There are 100% things worse than dying. However, bankruptcy generally isn't thought to be one of them.

This story is also really sad, killing someone because they wont lend you $100. The murderer had about $20k  in gambling debt
