Bravo TV's Personal Space blog posted a story about widower's moving on after the death of a spouse. I'm part of the story. Here's an excerpt:
When men are ready for commitment again, it’ll take some hurdles for the woman to get over in order to form a healthy relationship.
“I had my first serious relationship five or six months after my late wife died, and she was falling in love with me and every time I came home I felt like it wasn’t right. I thought oh, because of my emotional state, I’m still grieving, I can’t think through it straight. But a few months later I met Julianna who I’m married to 15 years, and we didn’t have these issues, everything just clicked,” Abel says.
He keeps some pictures of his late wife boxed up, and some pictures of his late baby daughter around the house, and says his late wife Krista crosses his mind “about once a week for two or three seconds” like "Krista would have liked that," and then it passes. But it was hard for Julianna in the beginning.
