Faramir was emotionally and psychologically abused by Denethor his whole life, and Boromir was abused through Golden Child Syndrome. There isn’t a child abuse category, so I’ll put this here just in case.

Faramir is frequently emotionally abused by his father, Denethor. Denethor even goes so far as to say that he wishes Faramir had died in place of his other son.

I mean, the Ring in itself causes a psychological addiction. Gollum for example is obviously suffering from this.

An adult child dies. We do not know him but we see his father’s grief and he comments “No parent should have to see their child die”. (Given that no one else has commented on this it is possible it is only shown in the extended version as this is the only version I have seen.)

In the end Frodo is successful at destroying the ring, Sairon is defeated, Aragorn is king and reunited with Arwen, Sam marries, Frodo writes down his story and there is peace in middle earth.

It is still sad though because Frodo can’t return to a normal life and decides to go with Gandalf, Bilbo and the Elves to leave middle earth forewer. Sam and the other hobbits are very upset about that, while Frodo is happy
