She suggested that widows/widowers have an advantage over those who are divorced because - we know what "right" looks like. Although I know I can never replace my precious husband, and would never want to, I am comforted by knowing that I have built a successful relationship in the past and can do so again, if God wills it.
Just wanted to throw that thought out there, in the hopes that it might resonate.
Yes indeed. We all know that we can succeed at marriage. Even though we'd prefer to still be working on it.
