Dating a newly widowed man

It means he is capable of abiding love and commitment and loyalty--all of which are wonderful qualities, and certainly worth a little more patience on your part as he continues to go through the bereavement process.

How much more time you want to give him might depend on how he deals with the issues of his wife's clothing and making your existence known to his in-laws.

His willingness to discuss this issue should also tell you how ready he is to make a lasting commitment to you.

I hadn't really ever looked at it so out of curiosity I clicked on it, wondering what her page looked like. #15 was: "I could not survive without Kathy." When he told me that I was completely caught off guard and wierded out.My bubble was completely burst when i noticed that he has posted on Valentine's Day the number 15 and that he would love her forever. Not only was he posting on someone's Facebook that isn't alive anymore, but he was proclaiming he would love her forever and that he could not survive without her..all the world to see. Although, I know that it is completely natural for him to miss her and feel ALL of those things, and that he has the right to..still stung to be alive, excited about my future with him, and, in that moment, feel like a second choice to something that would never be replaced. But in the mean time..sucks :) I'm going through the same thing with my boyfriend. As things are becoming more serious, we have begun to talk about marriage.I am a 32 year old woman who has never been married.I have been dating a widower for about 3 months now.

His wife died two years ago and together they had five children. FIVE :) To most people this would seem impossible and I cannot begin to imagine what it was like to deal with losing his wife and also have to face raising kids alone.I don't desire to minimize the love that he had with his late wife or the pain of losing her, at all. But it still makes me sad to read his feelings in the present tense instead of the past tense. I'm going through a divorce and my bf is the love of my life this I know. Post stuff on his fb page about her and had my pictures on his wall. He's amazing to me and my daughter from a previous relationship. This is new territory for me and I don't know how or what to feel about this. I love that he is open about her because it makes me feel like I am getting to know him better.He is a great man and I feel very lucky to be in a relationship that with so many obstacles, so far, there has been little drama.However...there are still those moments that sting when I am excited about being in love and realize that I have to share my future husbands heart with another women.
