Not romantic. Tragic, yes.
One would think in a romance novel there is a happy ending,
like in say ... the film. 'The Notebook'.
It seems to me these situations arise from three things:
two outdated concepts which are related to one another
1.) wives as property and
2.) an overblown sense of personal responsibility.
Lastly, insufficient public support for persons with
AD and particularly lack of support for their spouses
You and Elizabeth Marquardt have it right when you call these events 'murder-suicides'.
Without faith you can change nothing.
You will leave the world as you found it.
