Love suicide "Tokubei binds Ohatsu to the tree. So dreadful is the deed that his first stabs with the razor all go awry, but one blow strikes home in Ohatsu's throat, and she slowly begins dying. But before she does, Tokubei thrusts the razor into his own throat and the two die together." During thoses times that was romantic and noble to kill yourself! You would be consider a coward back in the day if you had an opportunity to kill yourself and you didn't! Now today that is COMPLETLY different situation all together.Suicide now could be considered to be selfish. While i think its not selfiish now i do think it was selfish back then. you died for your love but leave behind everyone else and its not because your depressed but just because you dont want to live on this earth anymore.
