Trimble told police she left with a friend after they got home and came back about an hour later to find her husband fatally shot. Her friend called police who found Trimble lying in the street, hysterical but not physically hurt
From the article, she was hysterical. Most anyone finding their spouse dead from a self inflicted gunshot wound would be hysterical. Another poster postulated that she probably made it as far as the street before being "overcome by hysteria".
One doesn't talk to one's GIRLFRIEND at that age
They don't? I know of several people who still talk to their "girlfriends" well into their 60's. You sure take liberties with what you deem to be appropriate behavior. Not everyone lives with the same set of *rules* you have imposed upon yourself
We can sit here and cast blame all we want, but we weren't there. We don't know what caused her to go with a friend and leave the children with *their father*. Maybe she chose to go away to give him time to calm down. She was only gone an hour. Maybe he was in the habit of raising his hand to her...and she left to keep that from happening. (notice the word Maybe)
As for your "button pusher" scenario...the one who's buttons are being pushed always has the option of ending the relationship and asking for custody. There is never a good excuse for taking the lives of young innocents like he did.
You have no idea if you are right...and your *Never their fault. Baloney.* comment reaks of your own issues.
More later. I'm going to a birthday party.
Women who are mature ADULTS, especially with four babies at home, DON'T run to talk with girlfriend after fight with husband.
If you know these adults females, then that says much about you. They aren't WOMEN, just adult females who are still running to girlfriends, instead of running home to their FAMILY, babies and husband.
If mature married women have problems at home, they see their parents, pastors or marriage counselors, especially problems like the one in this article. Running to girlfriends OBVIOUSLY wasn't a solution, since her husband was busy murdering their four babies and himself while she was "visiting her girlfriend."
Those are not *rules* of mine -- those are just facts of life.
You give a lot of "maybes" in your response. THAT IS WHAT I BEGAN WITH.....I was "wondering" about her. But perhaps you didn't *read* all of my responses, only the ones you didn't like. I am not *surprised* at that, not at *all*.
Anyway, WONDERING was my FIRST premise and I stick with it.
