A divorcee dating a widower

In the months following her death, I found myself wanting to date again. I thought there was something wrong with me; perhaps I was angry at Krista about taking her own life, and as a result, I was trying to get even with her.

Your new relationship will have unique challenges you won’t find when dating single or divorced men.

For it to work, the widower will have to put his feelings for his late wife to the side and focus on you.

Having someone who will hold them and tell them how much they're needed or loved will overcome the nagging feeling in the back of their mind that the relationship isn't right—at least for a while.
