However, today the grieving spouse may begin to date whenever he or she feels ready to do so.

The letter you remember was signed "'Mac' in Oregon," and it bears repeating.

Read on: DEAR ABBY: Thank you for supporting the widow who started dating three months after her husband died.

You were right when you told her, "The time to show respect for one's spouse is while that spouse is living." Here is my story, and there must be a few thousand husbands (and wives) who feel the same as I do. We raised kids, lived through joyous good times and horrendous bad times.

We’ve helped so many Jewish divorcees, widows, and widowers find out that they can indeed find meaningful relationships once more.But the day I die, my last thoughts will be regret that I shall leave her alone.So sad, to me, to know that after so many months of total concentration on my welfare — days of putting up with my misery and never letting me see her own misery — her reward will be to be left alone.I felt guilty even thinking about the possibility and could not fathom the idea of dating so soon after my husband had died. I was worried you would never want to date again after Mark.

I buried this idea along with the letter knowing I would re-enter the dating scene in my own time.
