Just wanted to see if there were more young people out there, like myself who were widowed in their 20's-30's.

I'm 31 and my husband passed on 1/8/15 (I was 30 at the time )

I was widowed almost 7 months ago. I am 32 (was 31 when my husband died). He died suddenly in a car accident. We have 2 small children - a 4 year old girl, and a baby boy who is now 9 months old. It is so, so hard.

I just joined. I was 27 when I was widowed in February of this year. I recently turned 28. I hoped to find young widows on this site I could relate to.

I am 35 now, became a widow at 33 -  10 days before my 34th birthday.

I was widowed at 30, turning 32 on Tuesday 3 days before my 5th wedding anniversary.  Ray died sudden at age 31.  No children which almost makes it more difficult.

Yes I'm a widow, I recently turned 28......I was 27 when I became a widow last February
Hi. Widowed at 31. Now 33. Lost my husband through a long battle with cancer that started not long after we married. No children , which makes it hard, no features of Derek passed on.

I am a little over the mark. Dean died February this year when I was 35 and then in March I turned 36. However he would have been 45 in May. He was old enough that he/we have kids ranging from age 24 to 7 and have a grandson who is 6. I was born 1979 so I miss the mark on the 80s group. :(

Don't let a year or two keep you out of the 'Born in 80s' group, MrsRDC.  No one keeps a strict count on that and there's easily a crossover. 

Here's a link to that group:  Just click on +Join and you're in!

Thank you so much! I am so glad to have found some people who understand me right now. Everyone else just looks at me like I'm insane.

Hi. Im 38 and lost my husband 6 months ago. He was 37.
