wmjsca Posted November 6, 2010 Report Share Posted November 6, 2010 All I ever see is empathy for the widow, child, parent, pet owner....the unmarried partner doesn't appear worthy of grieving. Very few references include partners (I'm so relieved this forum is different). Don't people realize that many marrieds lived together first? What would have happened had THEIR partners died before the marriage took place? Would that have made the loss any less worthy of recognition? Don't people realize that we just ran out of time? No one expects death before the marriage can take place. For those who waited for marriage to live together, this would not apply, but a good majority fit the bill. This hypocrisy only makes his death more traumatic. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
