I’m curious…do ‘these people’ have trouble with the death itself? Why would it matter that it was another woman she ran off with? Do they think somehow this man’s masculinity was threatened? Do they think he took his life because it was a woman and not a man?
If he kills himself over the loss of his wife – I would think there shouldnt be a problem. If presented as him killing himself only because it was a woman then I can see why they might think this could stir up some dust.
Just my thoughts…
