I am with you on this. My husband told me he would never want to be with anyone else but the thought of being alone scares him. We've been together since he was 17 and I was his first everything, so I think that's a big part of it. But we've also watched his dad, who was with my husband's mom for over 40 years, turn into a completely different (in a negative way) person since his wife's death and since dating someone new. My husband has never been unsupportive towards his dad but his dad has still pulled away to the point of barely even communicating with us now, never sees his grandkids. And he's also talking of leaving his house to this woman because she has nowhere else to go if he dies. It's just sad. I don't want my husband to be sad and lonely, but I don't want him to be with anyone else either. It's hard to think about.
