If there is only some lingering grief, try to figure out together how to move forward - how to create new memories so the old ones can be tucked away and only revisited when fondly remembering a late spouse on a birthday or another special moment or day.

Keep in mind that the heart is a very accommodating organ.

You might consider the fact that the better the relationship a new partner had in a past relationship, the more he/she knows about how to make unions work.

That is very good news for you and your new relationship!

Being aware and understanding about another person's feelings allows you to be gracious and sensitive to your new partner.

TALKING ABOUT A LATE SPOUSE: SHOULD YOU ASK QUESTIONS? If a couple were married at a young age, married a long time, or have children/grandchildren, it is going to be very difficult to talk about his/her life without mentioning a late spouse.

But the man who is ready to move on will signal when he wants a relationship that goes beyond appreciation of a tidy house and a listening ear.

That signal comes only in the presence of patience, warmth, sympathy, physical responsiveness, and a disinclination to point out how damn long you've been waiting.
