Adult children widowed parent dating
He hurts for them and their loss together and doesn’t want to burden them any more than necessary.
Having said that, we should never make promises to our children that may be impossible to keep.
As far as this other woman is concerned, I would also say that is absolutely fair for you to know where things stand in this regard.
It would be unfortunate for him to pursue a relationship with her just because she reminds them of their mother, but in either case, you have a right to know where things stand.
You can check out my website for additonal information.
It’s not unusual for things to be going well in the dating stage, and once potential marriage or long-term considerations are being made, the children get nervous and apprehensive.
My kids are devastated because they also love them with all their hearts.
I have a really hard time with this, too, simply because he shouldn’t have taken them with him in the first place.
I’m wondering if they are still not ready for him to move on yet, even though he says he is. We are still together, but the relationship is tenuous at best.
And, in December 2005 I realized that I wanted to go out on a date with this man. He told me he would do everything he could to make this work because he wanted us to be together. Also, we are both Catholic and he asked me to get an annulment, so I did because I wanted to get closure on my previous marriage and so that we (this man and I) could be together. I guess I should mention that I also have two children ages 17 and 11.
His kids (the ones still at home) are a 16-year-old son and a 9-year-old daughter. Things were going along just fine, and his daughter came home for Thanksgiving, and then a couple weeks later, my annulment was finalized.
As far as I know, they haven’t given him a reason as to why.
