Dating Your Ex’s Best FriendProtect your heart when dating a widower. Women can get hurt dating a widower. Last week, I mentioned that I often caution women about dating widowers. It's not because I think widowers are bad guys. To the contrary, most are wonderful men who were devoted to their deceased wives. For the most part, they understand what it takes to make a marriage work, and because of that perception, many women feel widowers would make great partners. I base my caution warnings on the stories women who've dated widowers have shared with me over the years.

Nah, the man is probably still grieving, she might be the rebound,besides with the billions of dack in the world, does it really have to be that of her dead friend's hubby that she has to hop on? But women do it, when my childhood friend died, her best friend started dating her fiancee within weeks of the funeral and ended up marrying him. Apr 12, 6. There's nothing wrong with it in a general sense, but I think she should approach this situation slowly and with a clear head I notice men tend to move on quickly when they lose a spouse.
Seems risky but if they give it more time then she will know his true intentions and they can discuss things with the rest of the family if it's meant to be. Thanks x 4. Apr 12, 7. I wouldn't do it out of respect for my best friend, but I've seen it happen.
At the end of the day if the two of them are happy together, they should let it be. There was no cheating going on while her friend was alive, so she isn't doing any wrong per se.
But yeah I wouldn't do it and wouldn't want my best friend to get with my husband ,if I died, either. Apr 12, 8. My old boss did it. Left her husband for him. Her friend was dying of cancer and she was consoling the husband. We suspected something back then.In Love With Your Best Friend? - Just Couple Things - The Timeliners
She had two tween daughters and her friend and her husband had a toddler. We used to joke that she was messing with the husband and after her friend died she was wearing her clothes and driving her car.
The friend also used to work with us. Shortly thereafter she left her husband and eventually started openly dating her deceased friend's husband. I left the job before they got married, but for the longest time, they would go places with just his son, because he didn't want her daughters around. She's Jewish and used to say her youngest daughter Rebecca, who looked like her husband would need a nose job and that she hoped that she and her older sister Jessica wouldn't have problems because Jessica was so much prettier than Rebecca.
Jessica looked like her and grew up to be a lesbian. LOL She was a piece of work. I remember her going out back to smoke in her fur coat while she was pregnant. She bought a two-seater Mazda when she had two kids and said as a family they could ride in her then husband's pick-up truck with an extended cab.

The thought of it just doesn't sit well with me.
This woman needs to rid her own guilt for dating deceased friends husband. For years, Dottie was the best friend of the widower's wife. When the wife died. The friend also used to work with us. Shortly thereafter she left her husband and eventually started openly dating her deceased friend's. They say dating a widow is best because she never bailed on a relationship, right ? Well, there's a downside, too I've been dating my girlfriend.
Thanks x 8 LOL! Yea why not? All is fair in love and war. He ghostvwill come and get you.
I wouldn't do it. How do you go from being around the family as a friend and Godmother to now being the step mom after your friend dies?
It would feel weird.
Some of them are married to my very close friends and the most persistent one was my husband's close friend who started hitting on me even before we buried. Although the late spouse is physically absent, the widow's love for him can . Thus, a widow dating a married man will be subjected to more criticism with their late husband's best friend within a short time after his death. Angela was overwhelmed with grief when her late husband's best friend We'd only been dating for three months when we got engaged.
The family is gonna feel weird. Even the kids may feel weird about it. I fully expected to come in here to OP being dragged by the last of her hair follicles. I honestly am stumped on this one. I wouldn't do it, even if I loved him so much.
For me, it's like an ethical and the correct thing to do. Her husband, who passed away 4 years ago, had a best friend that she is friends with as well, going back to teenage years.
Being a single guy, he came visiting from out of state and is staying at my girlfriend's house for several days. She has said she can't see me while he's here, and I won't be meeting him, due to time constraints. I'm having trouble with this single guy staying at my single girlfriend's house, old family friend or no.

The fact that she won't see me while he's here or introduce us just adds fuel to my fire. I'm into night one of his stay and she hasn't contacted me at all. We usually talk daily.
Is this as obvious as it seems to me? Share Share this post on Digg Del. Originally Posted by Musicguy You can't see her while he's in town? Just tell me you aren't going to let this slide.

My guess is that she owes you nothing because you only have been dating for 3 months, BUT there are expectations she is just ignoring. If it were me, I would just promptly end the relationship, even if there was nothing going on, she just plain lacks any kind of respect for you and the relationship.
It just goes to show you, she holds no value in your relationship. It's not even worth fighting about, her actions already speak volumes. I am a widow. It seems this is not a widow issue so much a personality one. Nope, makes zero sense that you would be NC while this guy is here Sorry for the run-on sentence. Yep, this could be weird for her. Some people think widow's should never move on, be true to the end.
Is it ok to date a deceased best friend's husband?
Are you the first relationship she's had since his passing? You two need to talk about this. Last edited by kendahke; 27th January at PM.

Like Try and kendahke, I'm wondering what the status of your relationship is and whether you two have made an agreement to be exclusive and in a committed long term relationship, whether you two discuss marriage, living together, future plans, etc. Do you two say "I love you" and have you met each other's families?
To me, 3 months is VERY new and even with an exclusivity agreement I'd consider it too early to be including a 3-month BF into special and rare visits from a old dear friend. That time is too precious, since it's only "several days. That said, I'd certainly take his calls or return them if he called, but I'd be brief.

So, no, "it" isn't obvious to me. What is "it"? That she's having sex with him? If that's the case, I'd be skeptical of a 3-month BF who was upset about the visit, the time apart and assumed I have sex with my lifetime friends. I smell huge red flag. If she wanted to clarify WHY she can't see you, she would have.
It doesn't seem to be that way. I'm sure if you told her a similar circumstance, you'd have hell to pay.
Dating dead husbands best friend
Something's not right in this situation. I'm left wondering if OP has ever had a prior conversation with this woman about this friend and what has been her description of their friendship, since she's known him for so long.
Is this the first time this has happened while OP's known her; is this the first time he's stayed with her since the funeral. Apparently, there is enough tension between them for OP to feel threatened by this man's presence in this woman's life and house.
If she said that she can't see you, she better have come up with a better explanation as to why rather than tell you nothing at all. You need to really consider this. You've only been with her 3 months. If you're going to bail out, the time should be done quickly here before you get anymore emotionally involved with this girl. I question their exclusivetivity as well. Like a lot of people, they just "assume" they are exclusive without actually communicating it.
