    is it weird to be engaged 15 months after your wife suddenly died? this is coming from someone who thought his whole explanation of how she died seemed like one of those unbelievable stories from 48 Hours, Dateline, etc...

    Apparently men who were happily married before tend to remarry very fast, especially when there are children who "need" mothering. I hope he knows this woman as well as he thinks he does, but I am happy for them.

    I raised an eyebrow. I can see dating again, sure, but how long has he been seeing this woman? I mean, it hasn't even been a year and a half. Either he jumped back into the dating pool really quickly or he's seriously jumping the gun on a big commitment. To each their own, I suppose.

    The weird part is that it is not weird at all. I couldn't see myself being on this kind of timeline, but it seems like people who were in really happy relationships and are good at them, don't like being out of them. Maybe, can't even function properly outside of them.

    I should never look at comments on Yahoo. There are a lot of people being really mean and judgy about this (people are always mean, judgy and crazy on Yahoo). Grief is such a personal thing. If they are happy and his daughter is happy, good for them.

    That's what I was thinking too...and that women who are widowed never want to get married again. I remember my grandmother who was widowed at about 60, she wanted a boyfriend (and she got one) but she said she didn't want to take care of a man again, especially an old man. lol

    I don't think Meredith has ever been married before? And no kids? I googled and couldn't find anything in her bio other than her professional life. She's a Harvard educated psychologist apparently. Or has a degree in psychology anyway. So she has a ready made family I suppose.

    I dunno, I think I would feel a little weird stepping into that role, especially so soon after them losing their wife and mother. But...I wish them the best and hope they are happy together.

    I guess having a loving committed relationship without getting married is not a possibility.

    I think that if you lose a spouse young maybe some people realize you don't have time to fuck around. He has apparently known her for years so it isn't like he just met her off the street. Of course he could just not want to be alone some people can't do it.

    A couple of my younger friends just did this - they've been dating for a couple of months, he's very recently divorced, and they got engaged last week.

    Same here. A younger couple that we were friends with got divorced and both remarried within a year. It was weird.

    As lonely as I would be, I wouldn't do this as long as my kids were living under my roof. I would take a rubber mallet to Mr. Happy and hope I could still urinate out of the thing.

    Love, for some people, is easily replaceable. For others, not so much...





    I hope it works out. There is a child involved, and I would hate for her to have another major loss in her life.

    i think that divorce is different than a spouse's unexpected death, not that i'd want to get married so quickly after a divorce either.

    This was me. When my children's father left, it was very important to me that they had me and a stable, happy childhood. My life was theirs. I was single until they grew up and left home, and now my time and my life are my own. That was my choice and not one that might suit everybody. My daughter recently said that when she was growing up, she appreciated the fact that I was always at home, always there for them, so it was the right choice for us.
