Dating after death of spouse with children
Without knowing the details, it does seem in Babs’ case, patience is paramount if there is to be any hope of a future relationship between Babs and her new partner’s children.
” In order for communication to flow freely and for the relationships to be healthy, we simply need to begin the conversation, “What does it mean to be ‘ready?
What is meant when an adult child steadfastly maintains, “I am not ready” to meet your new love?
Does this mean they are not ‘ready’ to see their parent remarry or they aren’t ‘ready’ to see their parent date?
I have expressed how hurt this makes me feel to my partner. Should my partner continue to keep me from attending his family events where everyone else will be present at, just because one of his married children ‘isn’t ready yet”?
Another family event is coming up soon, and I have already been told by my partner that he will not ruin his relationship with his adult married child. I understood this better a year ago as I had not met everyone yet at that time, but now one year later and I have met everyone, and they have been more than accepting of us together as a couple. I feel he is not being sensitive to my feelings regarding this. Thank you What stands out here is the emphasis on the word “ready”.
