Many widowers have been married to only one spouse.Many have been married for several years—in some cases, more than forty years.Of course, no matter how close our partner came to being ‘ideal’, we all know that no one really can be.That's why it's vital to remember your partner for who they were.Yet, to really see the rewards of this, it is important to remember two things: you musn't compare (try not to think about how someone new is similar to your previous partner) and you musn't contrast (likewise, try not to focus on how the person you are dating is different to your ex.) The danger with comparing and contrasting is that anyone new will be measured according to an unachievable ideal.To bear this in mind is important for anyone serious about beginning to move forward.
