Most widowed men will agree the daily demands on their spouse were far greater than they ever imagined.
So much of what a woman does is a convoluted support system keeping the wheels turning in a busy household, even if it was just the two of you.
If it takes a while to meet that certain someone, be patient and don’t stop looking.
You never know what the next chapter of your life has in store for you!
In spite of the inevitable concerns on the reliability of childcare, if necessary, and the day-to-day responsibilities of running a home in the back of your mind, it will be good for you to concentrate on something else.This is not to undermine a man’s role, of course, as he is likely to have been supportive of his partner in many other ways.If, because of a partner’s illness, the man is previously used to the daily demands of running a home, then coping alone will come in his stride; if not with a heavy heart.However, the older a man gets, the greater the chance he will be widowed.The course of bereavement for widowers will be different to that of widows.If there are young children involved the experience can be quite overwhelmingly demanding which, in some ways, is not such a bad thing.Being busy and absorbed with the running of a home and the organization of children and their daily routines will definitely help to take the mind away from feelings of loss.Coming to terms with this loss, whether you’re young or old, will challenge your spirit and senses more than anything.Statistically, women are far more likely to be widowed than men.Anything involving exercise is a good way to enhance your mental stability.Joining a gym or sports club, for example could very likely bring you into contact with others who have experienced the loss of a partner.
