I personally, know her well enough to know that she’s not over the loss of her husband but she is doing anything she can to keep herself and her mind occupied. I can’t imagine what on earth I’d do if I lost my husband! I can’t imagine dating so soon but how can I know that without having experienced such a devastating loss. So- long to short
Is There A “Right” Time To Stop Wearing Your Wedding Ring?

She’s a guy’s girl; loves sports and her tall, athletic frame and small breasts make her look a bit tomboyish. Renee is a pampered housewife who does charity work and never set foot in a gym. Not that she needs to. Renee is a stunner, a pale, raven-haired bombshell with curvy hips, a big round behind, an hourglass shape and an enormous chest.

There’s no specific time period one should wait before dating again. Grieving and the process of moving on is something that’s unique to each person. Some people take years, others weeks, and then there are those who choose never to date again.
There are days that I wake up after only 2 or 3 hours of sleep, and I think to myself: I might be okay today. And then I might be for a few hours. My kitties have their moods too. Other days they eat too much, way too fast, and they decide to start throwing up all over the apartment. The best, though, is when they sleep all day long; and then choose the minute I go to bed to start acting like lunatics. Autumn will stare at the ceiling and meow nonstop.

My wife lost her mom in March of this year after a decade long illness. Her dad decided to start dating 3 weeks after his wife died. There was no funeral or memorial or anything.

I would just do some serious examination of the reason behind wanting to be with somebody at any point relatively soon after the loss because you may want to avoid jumping into a relationship that really has little to do with the new woman and more to do with filling in the empty hole with the first reasonable option. I think that it takes time to heal and that everyone is different in their healing time but if you just attempt to fill in the empty spot nobody will benefit in the end.
The woman can never take the place of your kids’ mom and she will never be to you what your wife was. Not to imply that you can never have a great relationship with someone new It will be harder on everyone involved if they all develop some kind of relationship and then it all goes down the toilet because you realize too late that she isn’t like your wife Nurturing women tend to be attracted to wounded men, unfortunately this doesn’t make for a good start to a relationship because at some point he isn’t going to be wounded and she may turn out to be less nurturing than she let on.
Just be careful and don’t rush, slower is definitely better in this case, especially when it comes to your kids.
