Widower Wednesday: Our Engagement Story

Widower Wednesday

Just a reminder that if you're dating or married to a widower, consider joining the Dating a Widower group on Facebook. There's a great group of ladies there who are there to listen, laugh and cry with you, and help you through any issues you're experiencing.


When I asked Marathon Girl to marry me, one of her sisters was living in Illinois. Since she wasn't able to hear our engagement story in person, we decided to make an audio recording of what happened and send it off to her. We made the recording, mailed it off, and I forgot all about it.

Last weekend my sister-in-law said she was going through some things and found the recording we made. She converted the recording to digital format and emailed it to me. After listening to it, I thought I'd share it in part so readers know that dating a widower can actually turn into marriage. Also, I thought it would be fun to hear our engagement story as I don't think it's one I've publically shared before.

You can listen to the story at the MP3 link below. It runs about 4:30 in length.
