Widows or widowers that re-marry.
So a buddy of mine married a widow about 5 years ago who was previously married for 18 years, but her husband died of stomach cancer at only 38 years old. And from what was said about him by her and her 3 kids is that he was a great man that was always good to his wife and kids, so my buddy has always had BIIIIIG shoes to fill. Because it's different when you meet someone and they are divorced because their exes were total jerks, but it's a whole other ball game when you come into a situation where the spouse was awesome and beloved by all, and would have still been the spouse had he or she not passed away.
Is there anyone else in this same situation dealing with these same issues, so that maybe I can share your answers with my friend?
