Can Someone Kill Another Because of Too Much Love?
In the recent past, we have seen stories of people killing their intimate friends. I happened in my neighborhood recently where by a man killed his girlfriend and hid the body in the septic tank. And maybe you have also read about it in the news or know somewhere it happened. This has termed as killing for “the passion of love”, someone can correct me if I’m wrong. But on my side, I highly doubt, if truly someone can kill a friend because of too much love for him or her. Do you think so? What’s your opinion?
It seems there’s a thin line between love and hate, at least in the way we comprehend love.
It’s seems in this day in need God more then anything because everything going down slowly, we need a strong pray for world
Then that love you are talking about, is not a genuine love. For that is not love at all.
I agree completely with Nnaemeka, this is murder pure and simple and in most jurisdictions it is punishable by incarceration and in some jurisdictions death. Nothing gives us the right to kill another.
If you kill someone for love, in my opinion you don’t love him,instead you hate him. You pretended to love him because you wanted to kill him by being closer to him.
No definitely not acceptable. Although if it happened to you would your ‘love’ and emotions take over and make you do things you wouldn’t normally? Although different reasoning but what about assisted suicide and euthanasia – these to are because you love someone so much you want to help them. Is this acceptable?
I don’t think so gwhite. Not acceptable at all but we have seen it happen in our communities.
How can a person claim to love you but then still at the same time be so cold blooded and end end his or her beloveds life? I am sorry but I don’t think it could ever be seen as an act of love. Love is kind and warm you buy some you love flowers or spend time with them not murder them and then claim your reasoning for the unthinkable love.
Shane, but we have seen this happen a couple of times and maybe you have heard about happen in your communities there, what do you think is the cause?
Many people had been killed by their partners for love. This kind of love is an exaggeration.
I don’t see any love when someone kill her partner ; i know that higher degree of jealousy has pushed many people to commit a crime, killing their love ones. In my opinion it is no longer a love, if you really love your partner, you will do everything to keep him closer to you.
Most a times people kill one another because of too much love, which is not supposed to be
It could be a sign of weakness that they cant deal or handle the extreme emotions that a scenario like this will put you though.
Several times I have found this. Because love is too deep, a person can kill his lover out of jealousy. But is it love when one is compelled to kill another?
Adhara, i have heard many stories about people killing their partners for love. As for me i have never considered that as a love, or jealousy,it is a criminality. How can you kill someone you love too much ?
Leno, it’s really disturbing that this crime is happening continues to take innocent lives.
I think because their overly loving feelings drive them to do so, they are too jealous of their partners
Yes Ad, because it’s well known that too much love creates jealous, one lover feels insecure and begins to think that his or her lover can drop him/ her for another one. So, it’s now love and jealousy at pray which is so dangerous and my result into a person killing another.
I agree, Jackson.
I know of several cases where jealousy has resulted in murder
Ad, it’s strange to me in that the DNA of love is such that we should protect our loved ones from any harm, and true when you love a person, you can do anything to protect them from any harm, then now how do you turn against them and become their murderer! Isn’t it wiered?
That’s right, Jackson.
But in some cases I know that murder is sometimes based on too much love.
For example, a man who killed his former lover because he married another man.
I think it is based on great love, jealousy and hatred
So, I should conclude that too much love can sometimes turn into hatred Ad!?
I thought so, Jackson.
Sometimes a feeling of love that is too great encourages us to have too much jealousy
You idea holds water Ad, I have seen some people who take love too much far! It may result into such.
I am sorry to know that love is a factor in killing, it is sad
We have to find a way how to stop it happens, many beautiful innocent women have lost their lives living behind them children without Mom.
To kill someone because you supposedly love them is not right. If a male dates a female and the female decides to break off the relationship then the male does not have the right to kill her.
This is something that I would call obsession and is not love. The male needs to get over himself and just walk away and accept the decision of his ex girlfriend. There is no reason to murder her because she bruised his delicate ego. He should respect the females decision as he does not own her.
Yes Mr Edward, male or female should respect the sacred life of their partners.there have to be a punishment for such murder, it’s not a love as you said, it is an obsession.
I like your opinion Edward, some people take it very far. It’s like a matter of life and death, but loving someone isn’t like that.
Although we can provide sophisticated explanations that killing because of love is not right, but the truth is, that thing happens. When someone has lost love from someone he/she adores, that very love becomes a deep hatred. Sometimes, that hatred is so intense that it clouds his/her common sense, and he/she conclude that the source of his/her suffering is his/her partner. Then, the idea to kill emerged.
Is possible, now a days, someone will kill another because of love. Which is not proper
Ahmad,i don’t agree with you at the last statement. If you know that your partner is the source of evil and suffering you have been victim, the best thing is to break up with her very gently and Search for another one. Very simple than killing her.
This subject is very overwhelming. But it is true.Love is something great.It has been polluted over the years.Many years a th o when I was an adolescent my cousin had a classmate who was grisly murdered by the guy she was dating .This was in the New York Daily newspaper. And it was talked about for a long time.There was also another story where a man murdered his girlfriend because she would not go back to live with him in Haiti. It makes me wonder if a person has any regard for life if they will resort to that.And I’m sure plenty of you see these cases on Snapped, Investigative ID,and Date line.I do not know but the psyche of some human beings is beyond twisted. These evil thoughts bin their minds can and do lead them to finally kill the one they claim to love.People do state that these days many people have no business getting involved with anyone especially if something like that can happen.It is true.And it is such a shame that there are many people who do not accept that all relationships will not work out.Also that many were never meant to be together in the first place.As some of the members state it is also about having power and control over the person they claim to love.The only thing to do is to escape or plan to if you sense you may be in a partnership that may turn fatal.
In my understanding love is not about killing people or Partner, it is about giving him peace and joy. When someone kill her/his Partner, it is considered as a murder and should be punished, then throw in jail with a capital punishment.
A lot of people has killed one another because of love. I don’t see why some one will kill because of love. Is very bad and sinful
People have done it several times,there must be a capital punishment for such murder. I think people who do such murder, they don’t do it for love, they have another reason that push them do such crime.
I have read about it in the news several times and it has been happening here and there. But, the reasons for such an act still confuse me.
