My husband passed away almost 2 years ago (by his own choice). Our marriage was rocky but we statyed together for the kids. I started dating and things seem to be good (my oldest has had a few set backs due to anger with his father and realizing that this is our new life). We are all in counseling and are learning to be happy and look to the future.
My oldest says he respects my wish to date but will never accept it. How do I get past this feeling of letting him down. My youngest has embrassed the idea and truly enjoys the fact that I am happy.
I don't want to ignore my sons feelings but I also know that he is trying to be as controlling as his father was. People tell me that it is good for me to be happy and have a relationship. How do I get this pit out of my stomach? My son and my boyfriend get along. However, I know that he is reluctant to let him in.
People also tell me this is God's plan that he has put this man in not only my life but my kids lives to have a postive lifestyle...any thoughts?
