I guess knowing what led to his depression doesn’t really matter? Cos aunt simply refused to talk to him (for years).
Men from their peak when dropped to the bottom, they get depressed. My uncle sold off his car and wanna sell off their matrimonial house too but my aunt refused. Told my aunt because my uncle was desperate but my aunt asked me not to mention his name to her. Just wanna reiterate that my cousins are badly affected by this episode
