  • what a morbid thought! i honestly don't know if i'd want to move on. we have 3 kids, all under the age of 5. so if my husband were to pass, the last thing i'd think about right away was moving on. id probably focus all of my time and energy on the children. it would take a very long time for me to heal.. we're highschool sweethearts and best friends. i know there's nobody else on this earth that can replace him.

  • Ah, don't say that! I honestly don't know, because right now I can't imagine life without him. I must be hormonal, because your question totally made me tear up at the thought.

  • If it were me, I would be too busy putting all my energy into raising my kids, working and paying the bills to care too much about dating let alone re-marrying.

  • The professional say you should wait a year before you make any serious decisions. I think it's up to the person, when they would start dating, but in my experience with this happening to friends, most are not ready for quite awhile.

  • I wouldn't look for another, I would be so heart broken and depressed.

  • quite a long time, I'd have to finish raising my kids and it would be tough finding work right now

  • I would wait a very long time to date again, I could not say i would remarry... Um, my self and my mate are working on our relationship we are separated, but I don't know what I would do with out him.

  • I woul date long down the road, but I don't think I could accept another man's last name so I doubt I would get married. I am proud and honored to hold my husband's last name and can't imagine ever changing that.
