Join the "Born in the 80s" group to connect with other young widows. Guess we need to start a "Born in the 90s" group, unfortunately.
Thank You, I had not seen that previously..
Yep, I'm widowed at 27. It's very weird. I'm glad that I maintained my friendships during my marriage, because they have helped me so much. I'm sorry that some of you don't have good friends who are still there for you even though they don't understand.
We do have groups for those in their 20s and 30s.
The 80s group has been in place for awhile and has many members. To join, just click on the box near the top right that says "+Join Born in the 80s": http://widowedvillage.org/group/borninthe80s
We just opened up a group for those born in the 90s. Feel free to join both: http://widowedvillage.org/group/born-in-the-90s
35 now, widowed just under four weeks ago. My family and friends are mostly in the Midwest; I relocated to New England for our family just this August after living apart for the first year of our marriage (and all of our courtship). All I really have here are the people I work with in another town (I commute to our shared home and live in an apartment during the week). HIs ex is keeping my stepkids from having any contact with me - even kept them from the funeral - so I am starting completely over now. This sucks.
Yes, I turned 34 just after my husband died.
Hi, I'm 31 and just lost my husband 10 weeks ago to suicide.
