My partner Dennis was in my life for three and a half years. We were in the midst of merging our lives and families. Marriage was part of that plan. Betweeen us we had three houses in two states about 40 miles apart. I eventually sold my house and we bought our house closer to his, 25 miles away from my origin, but only 15 miles from his home. His house didn't sell. He was stressed finaancially, depressed and diseased. He took his life on New Years Eve 2010. So I am an umarried griever compounded with knowing he didn't want to live any longer 44. Consequently I am now a single home-owner with more on my plate than I ever imagined. My children loved him as well. And after paying for his funeral, the "family has since ravaged his home and possessions and eradicated his existence. I have emotional, financial and spiritual loss. Having found these groups is helping me to continue on amidst the anguish and pain. Thank you all for caring and sharing.

My 'husband' was killed at the scene in a car accident all by himself on April 11th, 2010. Our girls were 5 & 6 at the time. I loved him deeply since I was 18 (now 37). We married in 2005, but had a very tough time in 2009, I filed for divorce, but we continued to live together, he swore up and down he would never sign and I was ok with that, because I thought it shook him/us up enough to make some changes so we could be happier, but then Dec. 2009 during a huge fight he signed the divorce paper and I put it in the mail. He died 4 months later and because of this I was treated as a 3rd class citizen who never loved him, its been horrendous to say the least. We never stopped living and loving together...

It's good for unwedded widows to have a place. So often we don't. Thanks for setting this up, Supa.
