I have only just come across this site. I lost my wife to cancer nearly three years ago, she was 30 and left me with 2 young daughters. She wished for me to meet someone and start again. I have tried briefly but it's not easy. I see there have been several postings on this subject in the past, has anyone any up to date thoughts? It doesn't seem to work to well where the divorced are concerned, they just dont seem to understand. Maybe I'm trying to soon, but you can only do what you feel like doing and for my wifes sake I dont want to give up living and rot away, I'm only 38. I guess most of you folks are in the US, I dont know how things work over there, but I'm in the UK, and when all is said and done there isn't much support for people in my situation over here, even the goverment treats widowers differently to widows when it comes to social security help - we dont get any.
So any thoghts, I'd love to hear from you, best wishes and keep moving forward, they say the best way to respect the dead is to keep living yourself, I guess they are right but it's a tough one
