A 36-year-old woman got married to her 47-year-old husband a bit more than a year ago, and before they tied the knot, they were dating for about 2 years.
Sadly, she and her husband were widowed before meeting one another, and her husband’s first wife wound up passing away around a year earlier than her first husband passed away.
“We met in a support group for people whose partners have also passed from this same disease,” she explained.
“Neither of us were looking to date, but I kept feeling myself drawn to him (and he felt the same, he’d later admit), and here we are now.”
“We took it slow for the first 6 months. We didn’t meet each other’s children until we felt it was more than going through the same experiences and mutual loneliness.”
Her husband has 3 sons from a previous marriage; an 18-year-old son, a 15-year-old son, and a 13-year-old son.
From her previous marriage, she has a 15-year-old son and an 11-year-old daughter. She was extremely anxious about all of their children getting to meet one another, but they couldn’t have gotten along better.
Everything was like magic from there on out pretty much, and she felt they all finally found happiness together after experiencing some terrible tragedies.
Her husband included all of their children when he got down on one knee to propose to her. After she agreed to marry him, she and her kids moved to his house since it’s on the larger side.
