In September 2009, Arvind Pathak and wife Mamta decided death was the only solution to their growing financial difficulties. The 38-year-old MBA poisoned his 11-year-old daughter, then his wife. He consumed the poison himself and raced out of his house, screaming about what he had just done. Pathak is one in a growing list of couples who conclude that life can never solve their myriad problems.
