We've been together for 4 years already but we can never escape his past. As what I always come to mind, I choose this and I will be ready for what will happen and what may happen in the later future. His ex didn't leave any note or goodbyes and when she died they we're still together. I was the one who supports him in any ways possible, he would ran to me whenever he has a problem. I just don't know how to cope whenever that certain topic comes up.
You can never compete with someone who's already dead. I was with him through his grieving process and glad to say we overcome it.
But how can I overcome it? There was media coverage everywhere, associating my partner and her and different speculations and being a witness to all that has definitely taken a toll on me. It has been quite a while since but I still find myself thinking about the harrowing events every now and then. His life fell apart. I cant even imagine how bad he feels. I fell completely in love with him straight away and moved to a different country to be with him.
I sometimes forget that this has happened to him as he doesnt talk to me much about her and his friends dont really mentioned her I have tried to ask but i dont know what is best. He doesnt speak much about it. I told him in a few horrible messages which i regret. I reacted bad and mentioned a celebration which is of course not what I meant.

Posted April 6, Posted April 7, Thank you for your reply, and I'm so sorry for your pain. Posted April 8, God bless you both. Posted April 16, Posted February 13, I fear that maybe things may have just happened too soon, but things just kind of happened. Posted May 2, BluebellGirl, I was strolling through the web when I came across your post. Posted May 18, I hope this one helps Posted May 11, It was straight explanation of what the OP asked about and good advice on how he needed to either accept his gf as she was, including her memories and grief over a lost relationship, or MOA and allow her to get on with her life.
They have all understood that a loving relationship ended by death never leaves you. You should stick with those whose prior relationships ended by breakup or divorce. JD March 28, , Your GF is so lucky you are going to leave. Brad June 18, , 3: They were pretty upset and my son not really understanding was lost and confused so we left. My question is, how do I help this situation? I need some guidance. MSG July 28, , You can help the situation by being present with them, being there when they need and giving them time when they need.
Everyone experiences the loss of a loved one differently. You are there to support them because you love and care for their mommy. MsG July 19, , I was 22 when my boyfriend died. He was not an ex, he was my boyfriend. So that was unexpected, and you can imagine how shattered my life was to wake up one day with no closure to everything that had a start. Anyway, shortly after his death I met a guy.
I was still grieving the loss of my boyfriend, but I felt ready to move on. I needed that guy the most to tell me everything will be okay and that he is there for me since I have nobody. I needed a new chapter in my life. But since he was jealous and felt competitive toward my dead boyfriend, he decided to step away from me and leave me hanging. I felt a second loss in a row! I was so hurt and sad!
Even though that guy decided to step away from me he still liked me a lot. Right away that guy called me and wanted to be in my life. When I moved through my grieving process and moved on with my life, I moved on from that guy too. That guy still likes me today. Mini August 18, , 2: But I later found out was his wife and I am pregnant.
I feel so sad for him because he hurts I hurt. Ask him to speak to a grief counselor. Be as supportive as you can and try to pull the focus to the future. Oracle August 19, , 9: This so called boyfriend is a lair. He will do to you what he did to his wife. You really have not gotten the whole trueful story.
I bet the wife was sick this is barring some sudden accident and this guy was stepping out on a sick wife. I do not care if he his given you the line they were separated, they were still married. The baby comes first and stress is bad for both you and the baby.
I am also betting there is also another women on the side. Stop worrying about this gem of a guy.

Smart Owl October 11, , Especially, if that relationship was broke! But better to move on, life is to short to comfort someone who does not respect you! Suzanne November 16, , 7: Sounds to me like you hate men. I, too dated a man who lost his ex to suicide three years prior to our date. This man was the very most emotionally and physically unavailable human being on planet earth.
He had one foot in the grave with her. I never wanted him to forget her or not remember her. But I wanted him to be available to the person in front of him giving him love and compassion. If any human being is still in the process of grieving which is fine! Your advice on this one is hideous and abhorrent.
