If you are single, never married and a widow with three grown up sons expressed her love and her intention of wanting to get married to you, will you accept? I have had this experience, and i sought the opinion of my parents and friends, but none came up with postive suggestion, but they came up with these; 1 She will compare me with her late husband(My friends) 2 The early stage of the marriage might seems rocky free, that later the sons will take her away.(My Parents) 3, That she may want want me to be a temporary soothing crying shoulder(My Freinds) Have gotten similar experiences? What do say under these opinions, Are there benefit of marrying a widow? If there are what are they?

There are a few advantages to marrying a widow, as opposed to a divorcee. There's no ex to worry about, although there is still his memory. You have to respect that, but you also have to make sure she's not just reaching out to the next warm body in her loneliness. Marrying a widow shouldn't be any more complicated than marrying any other woman. Everyone has baggage, just find someone whose baggage goes with your own. Blessed Be

I think the decision to get married should be based on the love two people have for each other and their willingness to work through difficulties that arise in any marriage. I wouldn't worry about what the person's previous marital status was. Good luck in your decision.
