Does widowhood define you? A therapist told me that’s not so healthy.

But when you first meet someone new, how do you introduce yourself?

What are your biggest widow fears? Here’s ours.

Quirky sleeping habits (when no one else shares your bed).

What kind of pity might you have for couples with problems? Especially when they choose not to seek professional help? I reconcile with past issues I didn’t resolve with my spouse. Now, because I'm widowed, the best I can do is forgive, release and move on. But my friends still have a chance to fix their marital problems—why won’t they?

The widow card—have you played it to your advantage?

Hope-filled words from Sherri.

Your spouse is dead, and sometimes you might feel…liberated because now you do things your way. Feeling guilty? Sherri did. But she tells us how things are today.

And there’s much more…
