I'm hoping to get some perspective from this community on a tough but not uncommon topic.

After the death of a loved one, a spouse is often drawn to the sibling or best friend of the person they lost.

I think this is far more common than many realize - and there's a stigma that keeps people from talking about it and connecting.

Has anyone else been through this? How did you navigate it?
