Dear Maureen

There are too many question and each one of them will call for a long answer. In order to find answer to all these listed questions, I suggest you do some reading of your own, or surf the net.

The crime of passion is a psychological state of mind that needs immediate attention of a psychiatrist or a clinical counselor. In such state, a person becomes extremely possessive of another person and no logic or ration helps to see reason. S/he would be willing to go to any extent to retain possession of that person, even by destroying the existence of him/her. S/he can not think of that person being with someone else. Its a psychiatric dis-order.

I suggest you visit your neighborhood university/college department of clinical psychology or psychiatry and have a discussion with a faculty member.

Hope that helps
