I can't help wondering if you'd be better off just saying your husbands died, as opposed to specifying suicide.  There may be a fine line between "overcoming adversity and tragedy" and flat out begging for sympathy.

I'm just kind of wondering out loud here - hopefully this isn't offensive or anything.

No, it's not offensive. That's precisely what I want, to know how does it look from the outside. I don't want it to sound like a soap opera, or "poor me" or something.

...inevidibly leads one to consider the connecting factor- that is, that they were married to you- not meaning ofcourse that you caused them to do it, but that you sure know how to pick'em....

Yes, but not anymore. Thank god/dess.

...Arguments against including it are that it might be too disturbing for the reader(s), might imply erroneously that I am unstable...

That's what worries me. I'm leaning towards using it without dwelling too much.

I answered explain, implication, examples, exception.

OK, here it goes.

I've been married twice and both my husbands committed suicide. The first one left me at 22 y/o with a toddler and a baby, the second one left me with those two boys plus a baby girl. I'm proud of the fact that I was able to overcome all this and raise three happy kids without getting bitter or wallowing in depression, but I don't want my PS to sound like a soap opera.

Any thoughts, please?

Am I supposed to even remember every single place where I worked for the last 25 years?  :P

Hi, girl!

What I've got from what I've read is that regarding law school applications it never hurts to disclose your URM status. You're just letting the admissions people see who you really are, so even if it's not in their application, make sure to let them know either in your personal statement or an addendum about the obstacles you had to overcome to get to where you are.

I guess it's specially important in your case, since you already know you will have problems with the language in the LSAT.

Good luck!

Spanish is my first language, by far.
