Dating after death of spouse with children
We do know that the couple are dating for two years and despite the entire family being on board with the relationship, one adult married child is firmly holding out- seemingly asking his father to “choose” either a relationship with a significant other or with himself.
As I agree with your comments…I question how long should one wait for the children to be ready to meet me?
One of his two adult married children has fully accepted me, as have all his friends and other family members, which include the entire family of his late wife.
They have all accepted me and have told my partner how happy they are for us.
The father should not push his children, but rather discuss what it is they need in their own grieving process and how he can support them.
He can still be in adult relationship yet recognize and respect that their grief time line may be different.
Their mom passed 15 months ago and I am dating the father 7 months.
