Divorcee dating widower
Here are some things to remember if you're marrying a widower: You are not a substitute for his late wife.
Some friends will insist on telling you what a wonderful wife-mother-friend his wife was.
"At first I was angry and felt it was disrespectful of his dead wife.
Then I thought about it and realized that the last three years of his life must have been a horror and of course he was looking for the comfort of a new relationship".
Widowed Village connects peers with each other for friendship and sharing.
I'm concentrating on making our life together a happy one." Don't be disrespectful, but bring the conversation into the present.
And, if they bring it up again you can be firmer with "Yes, I know, you told me all about it last time I saw you." And as we said before, change the subject.
You need to establish yourself with these people, not as a substitute for the late wife, but as your self, and with some people it's going to take time.
But remember he loves you and time is on your side.
Don't put him in a position where he has to take sides.
