Since he has threatened suicide in the past, I would have your friend call for a wellness check the next time he threatens.  And then do it each and every time he threatens it.

@nyebride: I agree. It seems like your friend’s SO is holding him hostage in the relationship in fear that he would commit suicide.

That’s terrible, but you can’t get back with someone because they attempted suicide because then anytime they break up in the future they’ll just try it again.  Definitely try to get your friend to call the cops if their ex starts threatening to hurt themself.

I agree with nyebride – wellness checks, the police, a local psychological institute, or something like that.  He’s stop the threats really quick if he’s not serious.  At some point – as hard as it is – we have to stop ourselves from caring about our previous SO’s.  Sometimes they use kindness and caring against the people who are kind and care about them. 

-I hope everything works out for the best!
