Can two caregivers build a life together?
I am a caregiver and have always been the protector of my kids and lifestyle. My husband of 30 years died 6 weeks ago in a dirt bike accident. Our marriage had not been easy and he was getting ready to leave me for the 4th time when he died. A friend of his made it a point to speak to me at family night. 2 weeks later, he found out his girlfriend of 5 years was cheating on him and he kicked her out. He had been her caregiver. We got together and talked and talked. I find him considerate, smart, fiscal responsible, supportive - another caregiver. My question, can a relationship have 2 caregivers? Do they end up respecting each others efforts or trying too hard to take care of each other?
Yes. Anything is possible who have things in common.
The secret is to go slow.
i hope so -- in a sketchy marriage myself would like to believe two people who care about each other and peoples feelings in general would make an ideal match-- but yes take things slow', sounds like you both have had some ups and downs in life and dont want a repeat--go slow and you will know if its right. good luck
