This site is run by widowed people, for widowed people

Widowed Village connects peers with each other for friendship and sharing. The moderators, administrators, and others involved in running this site are not professionals.

Please don't interpret anything you read here as medical, legal, or otherwise expert advice. Don't disregard any expert's advice or take any action as a result of what you read here.

We're friends, not doctors, financial or legal professionals, and we're not "grief experts." But we are here, and we've been "there."

Share in public

Widowed Village is a public forum. Your anonymity is protected mostly by your choice of a username that doesn't reveal your true identity to Google.

These open conversations provide great comfort and terrific information for the vast number of widowed visitors who never join our service. They can provide a window of insight into our world for organizations and professionals who serve widowed people. And often, the best conversations happen in open air among folks who are learning about each other equally.

Our forums are divided into these types of conversation:

  • Hosted topics -- moderated discussions
  • Open area -- discuss anything you want, or start a thread
  • Perennial topics -- the most common questions, long threads to read or add your experiences

There may be some situations where you may feel the need to be a bit more private -- where you don't want Google to index or find your words. For those conversations, we have added private discussions, which are hosted by a few Widville Groups.

Please read and follow the Widville Terms of Service and "Village Values."

Why isn't there a forum for people of my age?

We have found that inclusive conversations are the most useful in terms of connecting us as a community.

However, we can also gain powerful validation, support, and friendship from those who share important details, particularly parenting status. Therefore, Widville also includes Groups so that you can identify other members who may be similar to you, such as those with similar losses, losses in the same year, those with similar parenting situations as you, and those of your age and gender.

Groups are a good place to find new friends, and you can message freely among each other even without being Widville friends.
