Widowers and Marriage

There are widowers who say they have no desire to get married again. Are they telling the truth? What should a woman who’s dating or living with a widower do if she wants to get married but the widower says marriage is "just a piece of paper"?

In this Widower Wednesday video, Abel Keogh walks you through some steps you can take in order to evaluate how serious the widower is about his refusal to marry again and what you should do if you want to get married but the widower refuses to tie the knot.

Widower Wednesday: Widowers and Memorial Tattoos

The widower you're in a relationship with wants to get a memorial tattoo. Is that a good idea? In this video, Abel Keogh discusses why widowers want memorial tattoos after they're in a serious relationship with a new woman. He'll also discuss strategies to help the two of you talk through the issues so you can both decide if a memorial tattoo is something that would hurt or help your relationship. This is the perfect video for wives and girlfriends of widowers who want a tattoo as well as those widower who are considering getting one of the late wife.

Family Vacation to Moab, Utah

Earlier this month Marathon Girl and I took the family on a camping trip to the La Sal Mountains east of Moab, Utah. We had a great time camping, river rafting, and visiting many state and national parks. Highly recommend the trip to the area if you've never been. Here's some  photos from our 6-day adventure.

About 1.5 miles from our campsite was Oowah Lake. It was a beautiful hike to get there.
