I am a widowed daughter-in-law who chose to remarry. I was 35 and my husband was 36 when he was diagnosed with stomach cancer and had surgery that removed 80% of his stomach. Three days later they found an unrelated brain tumor and did brain surgery. There were complications from the initial surgery, and two more emergency surgeries followed, for a total of four surgeries. Prior to his death 10 weeks after the initial diagnosis, he had a colostomy bag due to peritonitis and was in very bad shape. He did not live long enough to actually fight the cancer. I was left with an 11-year old son and a 7-year old daughter to raise on my own.
After the children graduated high school, and my son was in the army and married, while my daughter was in college, I met a wonderful man through a popular online dating website. We have been married for 14 1/2 years now. My mother-in-law was prepared not to like him at first, but on meeting him, couldn’t help but like him.
She was prepared to like anyone who was good to us. She knew that I would never forget her son. We had been married for 15 years when he passed away. She had been divorced from his dad, so that may have accounted for her willingness to accept another relationship for me.
