Our expert says:
I understand WHY he feels guilty, but it was his father's choice, after his father failed to support his wife and children. He never intended this to happen to his father. Absolutely right that he needs to see a counsellor NOW, and maybe a psychiatrist for extra treatment for his depression and maladaptive grief.
Tell him how much you love him, and want him to stay around so that you can raise children together. And remind him that just as his dad's CHOICE to commit suicide has caused so much misery to others, so would it if he made the same choice, while it would be of no possible benefit to his father to do so
