Yeah, it's sad that somebody decided he'd rather die than provide bare-bones funding for his children.

He felt under financial pressure to provide child maintenance money which had forced him to work around-the-clock, friends told the hearing at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall.

His friend of 20 years, Paul Lewis, who found his body at his home, said: I was concerned there were issues with his girlfriend at the time putting pressure on him for child maintenance money.

In a conversation we had about a year before, he said he was having a tough time. He said he considered doing it [suicide] but the thought of his mum stopped him.

Men should be allowed to have an "abortion" just like women can.

Child support is a men's rights issue. It's a whiny, professional victim, too much time online drinking your own koolaid issue but it belongs in politics none the less.

edit: Also, if he has life insurance that covers suicide, this may be the most effect way to guarantee the kid is relatively secure financially, as horrible as it seems.

Even if he has to work 24/7, its a mans job to provide for the family, no matter what. He should be a man and provide for his family. Just sayin, this man is a real piece of work. Instead of helping his family, he ends his life so they suffer. He knew the risks of being married and starting a family, it doesn't matter how much he hates her, it's his job to provide for them. If he can't do that he shouldn't have gotten married and started a family. No sympathy for this guy here.

My father and mom hated each other. My father could have skirted out of Child support (he's a cop with many friends) but he didn't and he paid for 8 years till our youngest was in college and even now he helps pay the rent. I'm sure it's expensive, and he struggles, but, he does what's best for the family.A child should not suffer because the parents hate each other.

/rant over.
