What do you have to do to get dumped?

A WOMAN who admitted the attempted murder of her husband and three children has been given five suspended life sentences after her husband begged she not be sent to jail.

The 28-year-old - who cannot be named for legal reasons - set fire to the family home almost two years ago. Yesterday,

She set fire to your family home? Sweet imagine getting to break up with someone and not having to do the you are dumped talk, how cool would that be? no guilt or anything.

the court heard that despite almost killing her husband and children, she is now living back in the family home and has been forgiven by her partner.


Has this woman got a golden gee or something? What on earth could she offer that would be worth the risk of getting yourself barbequed? I know what your thinking but no even if she could cook like Nigella Lawson would you really trust her around open flames?
it was also revealed that she'd moved her things into a flat in Limerick the week before the fire, where four insurances policies were found, the largest of which was worth €180,000 if her husband had died.

Call me cynical but does the idea of a paranoid schizophrenics with such careful planning seem suspicious to you? I heard in the radio news that the woman believed that satan had told her the house was possesed and should be burned down. I never pictured satan as this Eddie Hobbesian figure of shrewd financial planning.

"Hi I'm Eddie Satan. Before you kill your family it is important that you lay plans for your financial future. I would fill out Hibernian life assurance form 1a6C" I never pictured delusional hallucinations as so helpful and informative.

I feel sorry for the children, and th e children only.

A guy is prepared to live with a woman who carefully planned how to make money from murdering him deserves everything he gets. I don't care if you look like Jabba the Hutt after a four year all-grease diet, there are STILL women prepared to
a) sleep with you
b) not murder you

Yeah you'd think this would be the point where you'd go hang on a minute maybe I should reconsider this relationship. Like you know if she burned the toast maybe you'd have a row and forgiveness but the house? With you and the kids in it?

If she was crazy and the voices in her head said 'burn them all' that's not a good sign at all. Arson being one of the sure signs of craziness. But if the voices in her head tell her to take life insurance and keep it at a secret location... As you said what sort of voices are they?
