He eventually signed the house over to his wife to protect her and his two young children.

Depression can cause the person to withdraw completely from everything -- and everyone -- around him or her.
"If you're a partner with someone, it's very frustrating," Haltzman says.
At some point, though, you will need to let your partner know that you are bipolar.
"I don't think it's necessary to introduce your psychiatric problems on the first date," Haltzman says.
"I think the more the person knows what their cycles are, the better they might be able to be in charge of them," says Myrna Weissman, Ph D.
Warning signs, she says, can include disturbed sleep and changes in activity level.
Any number of things, from work stress to money issues, can lead to arguments and put strain on a marriage.
Haltzman is clinical assistant professor in the Brown University department of psychiatry and human behavior.
He's also medical director of NRI Community Services in Woonsocket, R. and author of The Secrets of Happily Married Men and The Secrets of Happily Married Women.
