She lost her husband in such a way less than a year ago and she has a boyfriend? I am not saying that is bad. But what she has gone through, and is still going through, does not really leave you in a very clear state of mind. And you should be to start a new relationship. If she is not already getting help, she needs to. Look for survivor support groups. Call local hospitals for referals to groups in your area. And just keep doing what you are already doing. Support and care about her. I think it is a wonderful thing that you are seeking help and advice for her.
