Chuck and WooWoo - My dad passed away 7 weeks ago after a short battle with cancer. He and my mom were married almost 40 years. We are all obviously heartbroken and sad beyond anything I've ever known. The other night my mom announced at dinner that she was going on a date with a man she met at church. My brother and I are appalled. We think it is tasteless and too soon. We can barely process our feelings & accept he is gone - and now its like my mom has forgot she was even married. It is out of character for her. Is this part of the grieving stage? Does she need to see a counselor? We are so confused. I don't want to tell her what to do - she is almost 70! - but I feel she is moving on way to fast. Right? Thanks for reading! You guys bring me a little slice of sunshine & happiness every morning on my way to work. Thanks again. Smiles.
Dear Chuck and Woo Woo, I have been married for 25 years, my husband has been chatting with women on the computer, cell phone and texting. He has told me it is just talk. I am having a hard time trusting him. I have asked him to stop, telling him that it bothers me and he still hasn't stopped. What can I do? This has been going on for about a year (maybe more). We lost a child 10 years ago and I wonder if he seeking comfort from them and not from me. He has refused to go to counciling. Please help. Thank you!
