  • Yes you can. We married in Dec 99 and I was 5 months pregnant. In April of 2000,we found out my daughter had died inside me. Even at only being married 4 months and losing a child,we were able to be strong together and not let it ruin our marriage. This December we celebrate 11 years.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Be strong for one another.

  • Yes. I think if you both love each other and understand each other you can pass this. No blame games either.

    I am soooo sorry for both losses

  • Yes, you both can survive this, but it won't happen over night. I am so sorry for your losses. I had back to back miscarriages but they weren't that close together so I can't imagine your pain. Try not to blame yourselves or each other and look to each other for comfort.

  • Yes it is. It is hard to imagine at this point in grief but a relationship can work through it and get stronger.

  • yes. we have an acquaintancewho lost a 17 yr old son.... they are still together.  Im very sorry for your loss but think about what you would be going through after 17 yrs of raising a child.  If you need counseling... perhaps seek that would be helpful.
