Dating a widowed man with kids
Does it mean that seeing the parent happy somehow defiles the memory of the deceased parent?
” In order for communication to flow freely and for the relationships to be healthy, we simply need to begin the conversation, “What does it mean to be ‘ready?I have expressed how hurt this makes me feel to my partner. Should my partner continue to keep me from attending his family events where everyone else will be present at, just because one of his married children ‘isn’t ready yet”?Another family event is coming up soon, and I have already been told by my partner that he will not ruin his relationship with his adult married child. I understood this better a year ago as I had not met everyone yet at that time, but now one year later and I have met everyone, and they have been more than accepting of us together as a couple. I feel he is not being sensitive to my feelings regarding this. Thank you What stands out here is the emphasis on the word “ready”.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.
Suddenly the bereaved child can feel as if they are losing their father to a new family.
