Widower dating wedding ring
I figured that when I tan, it lasts till October, and by October, I'd probably be ready to date. I took to wearing my rings on a necklace about 4 months after the accident and then finally put them away about 6 months because I was afraid to lose them.Didn't want anyone to think I was cheating (or "on travel," as they say! I still put them on occasionally, especially around anniversaries.
I wanted to address a question another widow asked me a few weeks ago about what I've done with my wedding rings since I've gotten remarried.Having a good picker means not only that you learn how to spot and avoid the jerks, but even more importantly, that you don’t miss the really good guys. When a man is in a happy relationship he pours himself into it. We’ve experienced a lot: love, heartbreak, successes, failures – and having lost a spouse is a very real possibility. I have also spent the past 8 years closely observing many women as they dated Ws.And when it’s gone, he’s left with the kids (maybe) and his job (maybe). So if he knows what he wants and is ready for love again, he takes his search for a new partner seriously – and that’s the gem of dating a widower. But, as with all of those other big life experiences, being widowed isn’t the end of the story. Together they are traveling the world and running marathons. And it’s not like she had to ‘make him’ do it – he loved adding that to his life! Some have remained in great relationships with them (like Karen above). Together we examine the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of life as a widowed person.The views expressed here are those held by each individual author.
