second chance?

This single 50 year-old lady has a friend who is now a widower. A close friendship is being rekindled into love . I hear wedding bells.

Comments I hear include these.

a) Good for her. ( and him)

b) She should think twice.

c) Is he in good health? She might be saddled with looking after him

d) It is their destiny to be together.

e) Since he doesn't have kids, there are less complications. ( Actually, I personally think this need not be a factor)

f) Lucky him. ( and her?)


What do you say?

Yan, yes, I have been busy. Your greeting prompted this post.

  • What is the couple's problem? I have a cousin sister who married at 50 to a widower whose children are already working adults. She even dressed in white for the wedding. One cannot take life for granted that it would be the wife to take care of the husband. My church friend,T, is suffering from brain cancer. It is her husband (older than her) who is the caregiver now.

  • Fortunately you are not my teacher otherwise I sure fail all your papers. Your questions all seem so simple but yet so profound I am still thinking about the frog question and now this one.

    On the other hand if you were my teacher I must be very bright through your teachings.

    On the other hand Hmm.... Still thinking...

  • ya, go for it!!!

    myself, i'm divorced w young kids and i deserve a second chance. i'm still a mam who needs love and need to loves other. i'm in love with a young, pretty and smart lady (great except she worries too much). But people around tell her not to get involved with complicated people like me.
    Worry being labelled as bad step mom, or lack of acceptance from my kids or disturbance from my ex-wife should not be a factor as long as our love is true and strong. why cant everbody stop influencing her and leave her alone to make her own decision?

    Don, yes, u deserve a second chance. but if u really want a second chance, u need to put yourself into her shoe and talk to her with more understanding.

  • kopi soh, I agree

    don, all the best! Your girlfriend's age could be the factor why people around her are influencing her negatively?
