Having someone at my side was better than having no one.
Eventually I ended the relationship, but it came at a high price.
Your new relationship will have unique challenges you won’t find when dating single or divorced men.
For it to work, the widower will have to put his feelings for his late wife to the side and focus on you.
Widowers Have an Internal Need for Relationships A few weeks after my late wife, Krista, and I were married, we had dinner with her grandmother, a widow.After she told the man she planned on coming, the man had then told Krista's grandmother he'd be calling on her soon. How could anyone even think about dating someone else when their wife wasn't even buried yet?On the way home from dinner that night, I told Krista that if she died, I'd never remarry.However, widowers who aren't serious about starting over with you can only fake these relationships for so long.Sooner or later, the doubts that have been nagging them since they first became serious with you will overwhelm their desire for companionship.
