Death Of A Spouse – Can I Love Again?

by Dr. Karen Ruskin on January 8, 2013


If you have experienced a loss of your spouse, this death is traumatic indeed. There may come a time that you meet someone and fall in love again. It is quite possible, and very likely. Perhaps this time has come for you. For many, it is their adult children (certainly young children as well) who struggle with their parent loving again. During an interview with Ivanhoe Broadcast News the Smart Woman series, I shared concrete tips and advice for how to navigate loving another after such a great loss. In addition, I offer insight into dealing with adult children when their parent has found love. As a marriage and family therapist, I know you will find this short insightful video helpful, which also includes the story of a real life couple who found love after loss. I invite you to watch the interview.
