For me the jury is still out on if Jon was suffering from mental health issues or if his suicide was an exit strategy when his deals went astray so he didn’t have to face the fall. While excessive gambling with your life is a symptom of some mental illnesses, I am less inclined to be sympathetic when it seems the activity is unethical. Backroom deals and manipulating votes for the stop is what it seemed like to me but I will wait to see what more unfolds.
ETA I am a tax partner and my husband is disabled and sure I have business trips and last night a client meeting until 7pm but we just make it work with our daughter. I don’t see why I would turn down career advancement just because I am a female parent that seems pretty sexist to me. Partnership comes with other perks too besides the money, the work is better, I can duck out to watch the Christmas concert, etc. People make non 9-5 schedules work all the time and still are good parents, doctors with weird hours, nurses with 12 hour shifts, real estate agents who work evenings and weekends, hairstylists who work evenings and weekends are just a few examples that have kids without people criticizing their commitment to their families but somehow a partner lawyer or accountant having kids is a shit parent.
