Killing fields at home

The upsurge in severe stress levels and temperament in love relationships is cause for great concern.

Violent reactions have now become the norm in resolving domestic problems.

Jilted lovers have turned to bizarre methods of revenge. Husbands who cannot amicably resolve marital problems with their partners resort to family murders and suicide.

This is scary.

Socioeconomic problems have been cited as major reasons for these violent acts.

Stress-related problems can be resolved and advice can be sought from social workers, elderly family members and ministers of religion.

The nation must help in stopping these senseless crimes of passion.
