my mom passed away from cancer at age 52 in late April 2014.she was my best friend and it was an awful couple of years seeing her hurting and in so much pain. well, he started 'seeing' someone about 2 months after my mom passed.i can't help but feel that in some ways my dad moving on so quickly is disrespectful to my mom's memory, but i don't want to hurt his feelings either. Oh wow, that does seem like he started dating quickly...At just 2 months, I wonder how fair it is to that woman, as it seems doubtful your father even had time to fully grieve the loss of your mother yet. while your father has every right to do what he needs to do in order to get through this, I also believe you do as well.
Explain to your kid that you understand this perfectly and are not trying to bring a substitute for Mum or Dad who is no more.Sometimes people feel guilty about wanting company and physical love.Often they have all sorts of other unresolved emotions about the death of the partner, and the more they try to ignore them, the more they tend to surface. But they might be about anger that the person has gone, or about resentment that other people are still a couple and can look forward to an old age together.Couples remarry long before they have finished grieving their losses, worked through their issues or developed a healthy single lifestyle. Jeff and Judi Parziale A reader writes: My dad remarried recently to a woman he met four months after my mom's passing.I am 36, so part of me feels like I shouldn't be so childish about this--however--they are an extremely insensitive twosome.When one parent dies and the remaining parent begins dating or marries someone else, it can be very hard for the adult child to accept, no matter how soon after the death it occurs.
