Seven years ago Sherri’s husband Greg suddenly died.

Today, Sherri lives alone. Can you be single, widowed, and happy?

Consequences if you remarry before age 60 (if you are eligible for American social security retirement benefits).

Is Sherri’s current relationship like high school—on-again-off-again-on-again-off-again? We unravel some complexities of Sherri’s current romantic life.

Can you enjoy the moment, or do you dwell on the future?
