Right after Pete was killed, my friend Simone brought that very topic up, she had read a report on a study that concluded people who had good marriages often remarried earlier often before the year was out. At first it horrified me to think I might. My own mother had told me I was young I would remarry -- the very night Pete died...unbelievable. Then as we approach the two year mark and I have very few prospects, I am sometimes filled with baseless worries that 1.) our marriage must not have been good -- which I know is hog wash, or 2.) there is really something wrong with me, and only my poor delude Pete could ever love me -- which I also know is hogwash.
With all the people who think I will remarry, I suppose I should take some hope in that lol. . . the little lady at church that insists each week I smell so good, I should have a line of fellas following me around, sure seems to think I will and that I'll have my pick LOL.
LOL, you're probably the most eligible bachelorette among us, Lauren!
For weird remarks, listen to this: My friend was cutting my hair a few days before my husband passed away, but we knew he was going to die and he was in hospice care. She said, "You're young and cute, you'll get remarried." Both those assertions were arguable, lol. I never took offense because she has some mental issues.
My husband's mother and step-father remarried 6 months at the most after his first wife died. Her first husband has passed away 5 years previously. I never really understood how he could have gotten engaged so quickly after the loss of his wife, but I can't judge I guess. It wouldn't have worked for me.
