Another reason for suicides due to family affairs is unsatisfactory married life. Nowadays, both men and women work so they are not able to spend time with each other. If families of the man and the woman show enough support by asking about how their day was then that would make them feel that the family has a concern about them”.Banu Prakash, a neurosurgeon, says “One of the main reasons for the suicides is the depression of the person. So, the family, friends or relatives must be aware and they can help the person get out of depression by asking for him or her, as in to make them feel happy”.
