DEAR ABBY: I was widowed seven years ago. When my husband died, I thought it was the end of my suffering. It had been a mentally and physically abusive marriage for 30 years.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 64-year-old widow who lost my husband 5½ years ago. I became reacquainted with a former classmate at a high school reunion, and we started dating.
DEAR ABBY: I’m a widowed senior who has been dating a very kind man, “Ben,” for three years. He’s retired; I am not. He does things for and with me, and we enjoy traveling together.
DEAR ABBY: This is something I can’t talk about in my grief support group. I’m a 70-year-old widow. I lost my dear husband of 35 years 17 months ago. I always was more sexual than he was.
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 57-year-old lady. I have been a widow 23 years and chose not to date while raising my daughter, who is now 26.
