They are cute and they look happy which is so nice to see. I don't know why anyone would take issue with the video. I don't have time to watch it all now but I bookmarked it in my YouTube folder. I notice there's one of their wedding which I will watch as well. I just love seeing happy couples. My cousin married a white man and their story is SO cute! Her wedding was one of the happiest events I've attended. Maybe I'll post about when I have more time. Thank you for re-posting.Viewing this I almost had a change of heart.
This isn't about race as some will make a point out of, I saw what I thought was a lovely couple nothing more nothing less and all some can do is see race. I took the video down, but, I'm putting it back in here. I figure why should I let others feel like they won by stirring the pot of bringing up race. If race is what you think most of when you view the video, you have issues, not the couple.
And btw, WM/BW marriages, statistically, have the lowest divource rates. Just saying since it was brought up.
I'm so sorry to read of your loss AZ Jim! I lost my husband almost a month before you lost your wife. May they Rest in Paradise. I think sometimes loss is harder on men. I hope you can find solace in wonderful memories of your wife.Ironic. Here I am today a new widower, My wonderful wife passed away 1/30/19. I'll do as I am now........trying to make it alone and having a very hard time without her......RIP sweetheart
Thank you Jaminhealth. I'm always going to keep it real. And sometimes it helps others who may be feeling they are strange or wrong for having similar feelings.I like your honesty. We can share a lot of good times with friends, And no legal papers with friendships.
I know it's not a consolation, but you are NOT alone. Many of us do well on our own. Just gotta toughen up and hang in and keep the body going. Join some groups or something...get out and help some others...I need some sheets washed, want to help?I was a late bloomer. I married my high school sweetie when I was 49. (We had reconnected over the Internet.) After 5 years, we had to admit the marriage was a bad idea. We parted in a friendly manner. But I had grown to realize how much harder my life is now that I am living alone once again. I'm experiencing increasing challenges due to my age, physical, mental and emotional limitations. I will not run into a new relationship or marriage, due to loneliness. I just do my best to cope.
Sorry you are going thru the last part of life this way. WIsh I had words and I mentioned things above but sounds like you've kinda given up. Also sounds like you are living in a colder area of the country.Thanks, jaminhealth. I've been driving myself nuts these days. Sometimes I can't tell if I feel warm or cold. Some days I change my clothes several times a day. I turn off the heat, open the windows. Then I close the windows and turn on the heat. I try to do most of my grocery shopping online. I order Hormel Compleats, which offer a meal in one package. No refrigeration is required. Just stick it in the microwave for a minute. If I go grocery shopping in person, my body heats up quickly, and I sweat profusely. I have anxiety attacks just trying to bag to groceries. I hate being old and alone.
And all the cwap and B.S. that goes with it all. Molly has the same thoughts I've done and had as I approach 81 and a date is the thing I want to eat as a nice sweet.I miss the companionship and the sex.
You are so correct John! We all need some alone time in our lives, so when I get lonely, I go grocery shopping ... After that... I don't want anybody around me!Being unmarried doesn't mean you have to be alone.
