It’s as though they are saying, maybe your husband died so that you could meet this new man and live happily ever after.
Sometimes (okay, most of the time), though, first dates aren't smooth sailing.
Either that or “don’t you think it’s about time you started to date?
” The point here is that everyone out there, especially those who don’t know what they are talking about, has an opinion on this.
This is a personal choice that each widow must make for herself. I was very up front with them and told them how I felt and what was going on.
