Is Marriage For You?

Some widows start dating again and some never do.  Some widows wait for that perfect man who is just like the husband who died.

You need to realize that you would not be the same wife because life and grief have changed you.  Therefore, the same husband would probably not be the same perfect fit as it was the first time around.

Enjoy life and take control of your future.  If the right man comes along then that’s great, but if not you need to be happy and contented.  You and only you are responsible for how you live and feel.

Here is a link to a story of the realities of love written by a young bride, but it could also apply to some of us older ladies 🙂

    I agree that I could never hope to find a relationship like I had with my husband those first 20 years. Perhaps I should have ended the marriage when he began to change and left but I kept hoping for something that never happened.So I would like to meet someone,I don’t want a live in or marriage but it seems most of the men I meet are. So I am trying to adjust not only to life without someone I was with for 40 years,and to the fact that another relationship for me isnt going to happen
