Each person handles loss differently. But I was wondering how long you think people should wait after they lose a spouse (death/divorce) before dating/remarriage?
I didn't wait very long after my divorce to begin dating. I had gone through counseling and knew my marriage was over. In Michigan, you have to remain in the same house for six months if there are children. It took a whole year before my divorce was final. I lived in the same home, but separate room.
Some people would say it was too soon. But I believe when you know things are right with a new person, you should at least give things a try. It's hard not to...
In MO Kenyan's latest release- Addicted to Him, our heroine believes her husband is gone. He was a military man. She begins to fall for his twin brother but when her husband comes back, things become tricky...
Love is the most powerful drug.
Kit didn’t expect much when he returned home after being declared M.I.A for more than a year. The one thing he didn’t expect was that his wife and his twin brother would be planning their wedding. He now has to figure out whether or not his marriage is worth fighting for.
Danny was in a trance, ever since she heard that Kit could be dead. She grasped onto the first float that would keep her from drowning, unfortunately that was Chris, Kit’s twin brother. Her mind slowly unravels when Kit comes back, she has to make a decision that would affect their lives forever.
“You scared her away,” Christopher said.
The note of irritation in his tone didn’t escape Kit’s attention.
However, Kit was far from caring. That girl, Daniela—Danny—she did things to his heart that he’d never thought possible. And that was it for him, a warning sign he should stay away. Kit was committed to his career and because of it, he had decided never to get married or have kids. Danny had the house with the white picket fence, the Mrs. Kent and the five babies playing in the yard written all over her. Kit was just starting to get somewhere with his career. The last thing he wanted was a woman to veer him off the path. There was only one way he knew he would be able to stay away from her.
“Topher, you should totally go for it.”
He hated himself the moment those words left his lips. Christopher and Christian had promised each other never to date a woman the other was interested in, or had previously dated. And since betraying his brother would be equal to chopping off his right limb, Kit had stayed true to that promise.
“I don’t need your okay. I was going for it, before you rudely interrupted me. I think I’ll meet up with her tonight, right after the guys get in. Are you coming?”
“Tonight, here, for a pre-birthday-party party.”
“No, I think I’ll save my energy for tomorrow.” Kit was trying to convince himself that this was the right thing to do. True, there had been a vibe—more like an electric current—that had flowed between him and Danny. But he had to focus on his career. Turning down assignments so he could stay home with his gal was not an option. And yet he found himself staring in the direction she had disappeared to. “I’m going to head back up to the room.”
“Whatever.” Christopher was busy with his phone. Kit could only imagine what he was starting up. He was glad he wouldn’t be present for part one of the disaster. The sooner Kit could get back on base, the better.
