Betty and George Coumbias are a Canadian married couple seeking to become the first husband and wife to complete simultaneous suicides with legal authorization. They were featured in John Zaritsky's 2007 documentary, The Suicide Tourist.Although assisted suicide is illegal in Canadamarker, they are hoping to end their lives with the approval of the government of Switzerlandmarker.

The couple's request is unusual in that, while George Coumbias suffers from heart disease, Betty Coumbias is reported to be in excellent health.

Ludwig Minelli, director of Swiss assisted-suicide group Dignitas, has petitioned the Canton of Zurichmarker to grant doctors the authority to issue lethal drugs to healthy people, after they have been counseled by his organization, hoping to facilitate the Coumbias' suicide pact.
