Feeling ok after death and want to move on
My husband unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack 2 months ago. We had only been married for 9 months. We had only been together for less than 2 years. Prior to meeting him I had been a single mom if 3 kids for 7 years.
One of the first guys I ever dated after my divorce and not dating for 6 years I really fell hard for but the timing was way off. He reached out to me after my husband’s death and he has been an amazing support . A friendship is definitely there but that connection is still there.
I don’t want to close a door if it is possibly opening but at the same time I don’t want to be disrespectful to family. I’m just not sure what the right thing to do is.
It is not being disrespectful to the family. The husband has passed there is nothing anyone can do about that.
If he is reaching out being supportive and you feel okay about that that is fine.
The family is not you, and does not know what you are going through.
We all need some support at time to time. No reason to be not friends, if not more.
