It's an age-old problem. "Balancing" contentment with drive and ambition / having realistic expectations but then trying to push yourself to do better.
Does it seem like the young lady was lacking on the appreciation and contentment side of things which led her to take her own life?
He reminds me of the gay guy (also sikh family background) who murdered his innocent wife of six months after she discovered his gay porn and the reality of her being duped . Of course she MADE HIM murder her ... These guys have serious issues with personal responsibility. Of course now his case has been used to push the blame of such cowards and liars to the parents and families under the guise of 'forced marriage'. And no he wasn't forced because guys are usually the active initiators of engagements and selectiin of partners.
