Setting yourself on fire would not make him change his mind to marry you. Hope she makes a good recovery, but nobody is worth losing your life over

I'd rather be alone the rest of my life, than to do something like this to myself.

Now the poor woman,if she lives, will have a life of surgeries and pain.

The irony of it all is that if they had married, they would probably be divorced in about five years.(And she would probably be the one kicking his butt out the door).

She will be by herself the rest of her life for sure now. Unless she is RICH no man is going to want her.

Heated argument? That is really a hot argument! What happened to walk away and live to fight another day?

Sad, but probably true.(And she did it to herself. It's not like he set her on fire).

I wonder how old she is? This is going to be so bad for her. A very foolish, out of control reaction to something that, in total, very minor in comparison.

"The man's future wife caught on fire."

This article is missing some rather significant information. Makes it sound like a case of spontaneous combustion. I realize the video gives more detail, but the article should be able to stand alone.

You don't bring much to the table, do you? Is this a cut & paste deal with one or two word changes when the urge strikes? You left out the usual part about how they should kill themselves slowly. Do you torture small animals in your spare time and dream of doing the same to " dumba$$crackers"?

According to the video, she is 24 years old, her Mom died 2 years ago from cancer and her brother drowned in a nearby pond (didn't say when)...sounds like she's already had a very hard life. What a sad situation!

What a psycho biotch. Hate that she's burned herself but what exactly does one gain from setting herself on fire?
I can't believe anyone would agree to marry someone this crazy in the first place! Duh Huh

Here's another article with a video:

I googled "woman sets self on fire" and was shocked at the huge number of incidents it pulled up, must happen more often than I thought:

callous : a protective condition of mental or emotional insensitivity

Now Justice, what are you protecting yourself from? And how do you know they were crackers? Maybe it's a mixed neighborhood of people that like to live in the boonies in travel trailers beside dilapidated old houses! Just because the neighbor on the video was a cracker, it doesn't mean that only crackers could possibly live next door. If you have facts to prove otherwise in this case, just disregard my statements please.

Too bad she did not know all the gender-baised laws that trap a man. Breach of contract, Domestic violence laws, Sexual laws that accept false allegations - i.e. no proof required, etc. She could have made him wish he had married her.

The days of marriage are over with for any intelligent man. Women are like a nitro glycerine. Once false move and you can blow your self up.

Yes, she could have done anything else, but set herself on fire. However, why does it always be two extemes? Can't women be "middle of the road" for you? You act like all women are either nutjobs, or manipulative, evil, spiteful she-devils from hell.

What if you had a daughter? Do you? Is this how you feel about your daughter? Sister? Niece? Female cousin?

If you had,(have),a daughter,
what advice would you give her in conducting herself in the world? Would you instill in her that she is evil, no good, useful only for a man to do what he wanted with her? What if your daughter was abused by some guy? Would you blame her? Say it was her fault? Pat the guy on the back and tell him to kill her the next time? If your daughter fought back, and ended up in court, would you emotionally support her, or would you be sitting on the side of the courtroom of the guy, testifying against your daughter?

This woman did a horrible thing to herself. Why, who really knows. Maybe she is unstable,(certainly sounds like she is, at least, clinically depressed). The man did not want to get married. He probably had good reasons, if she was unstable, and will probably feel guilty about this for a long time. I feel badly for both of them.
