Just the thought of that feels very creepy, smarmy. . .something quite distasteful to me. No thank you. I'll pick my own or decide to stay on my own, but to have someone tell me who to marry or even that I had to marry. . .UGH. Creepy.I think this may be more common than one would think. My daughter's in-laws went through this very thing. Her mother-in-law was dying and told her husband to marry their long-time friend of the family. He did, not very long after she died. I was invited to their house for a holiday and went. The new wife seemed very nice but if I was my son-in-law, it would have been very hard to accept.
