Widowed how long before dating
She was 82 while he was 80, and their wedding was beautiful. She was married and in love all those years, she shouldn't be sad and lonely at the end of her life!
There were small children involved and she received a LOT of insurance money. You say something along the lines of, your life with his mother was so wonderful that you'd like to experience something like that again. I know a man who remarried within six months of his wife's death, while others aren't ready to date ten years on. it's difficult and a lot of sensitivity is required.
