In a lot of ways there is even more to cover here, but I think it’s best to try and keep it simple.If there is one issue that can create division, and even anger, in a room full of widows and widowers, it’s the topic of dating after the loss of a spouse.Of all the subjects in all the groups that I’ve ever facilitated, this may be the most controversial.But for a lot of people I have worked with, the thoughts of dating again come after the acute and early stages of grieving have softened and subsided a bit.So in wanting to make this discussion inclusive to everyone, we’ll take a look at each side of this “debate” to help you figure out perhaps, where you fit.
