What a TOTALLY sexist comment!!! If the woman was the victim, there would be a million posts against your comment. Yeah, I'm a guy, and not PC, and I don't like it! Inappropriate.

Hi everyone. I am good friends with the stabber and and the victim. It's a sad state of affairs. It really is. They both loved each other very much. You never know what someone has been through in life to make them snap. I am not justifying her actions by any means, but it's a tragic situation for both parties & their family & friends.
