Childlessness As a Cause of Death? You Betcha.

April 22, 2018

When I started The NotMom in 2012, it didn't take very long for Google to present me with an article from India telling of the death of a woman so focused on her lack of a child that she killed herself. In this instance, the woman set herself on fire.

Maybe her husband nagged her about their childless life. Maybe it was her in-laws who pushed her over the edge. If everyone assumes infertility is the woman's fault, the whole dang village may have buzzed about her. 


Now, it's 2018 and I know that childless women die all the time in India. Suicides, murders, murder-suicides, double suicides. I  don't post about all of these stories. I couldn't. But, sometimes a headline stands out, like the man who used an axe to kill his wife.
