Dating a young widow man redating the gospels

I [23M] found out that my younger sister [16F] was sent away to a religious camp for her sexuality by my evangelical parents [59 M/52 F], who lied and took money from me (I believe) to fund it. I (51F) want to move with my son (17M) out of our neighborhood because he has gotten involved with a serious gang retaliation situation.

My husband (63M) doesn't want to because he has 'roots' in the neighborhood.

He’s probably worried that they’ll think he’s moving on too fast or, perhaps, won’t be open to the idea of seeing him with someone else.

He might also be concerned that this new relationship will cause friction with other family and friends who are still mourning.

These worries and concerns are natural, but they’re no excuse.

If a widower really has serious feelings for you, he won’t let the thoughts or opinions of others stop him from letting the world know about you.

as well as first hand experience as a member of the population in question. I'll admit that those who date widowed people is not a group I have chosen to speak to or for...

Abel is far from the only author tackling this subject: in addition to his two books, Dating a Widower and Marrying a Widower, there is Julie Donner Anderson's Past: Perfect! and that knowing how few men under 55 are widowed compared to women (at one time Social Security told me it was 1 man to 7 women) makes me quite skeptical...

To me, the Dating a Widower movement, such as it is, looks like it's just based on following Google to high readership.Perhaps some of them were even a little nuts before they were widowed (we are changed by our losses... I also think that widowers with children still at home (most of the widowers I know fall in this category) are a bit more justified in hanging on to "stuff" from their past lives and sharing family (like in-laws) and memories a bit more actively.
