Patrice,

My husband had always told me that I should look for someone should he die. I'd always say that I didn't want to train anyone new...we'd chuckle...then when he got sick with the cancer, he was more in earnest telling me that it was ok to find someone new...he even told our adult children that I should find someone to spend time with...I have NO plans to do so. I loved my husband so completely that I don't think it would be fair to introduce anyone else into the mix. That's how I feel and I'd be totally surprised IF anyone else would even interest me. But, I have a friend who remarried twice after his wives died...he couldn't be alone.

Hi Patrice, welcome warmly. I thought you might like to know about dailystrength.org if you haven't already found it. It's very upbeat and progressive in its outlook on widowhood. Two members of the group even developed an online friendship, so sweet.
