    ...................however long or short it takes. We were created to love-our whole life long-so if your ready to love-THEN LOVE! Just make sure YOU ARE EMOTIONALLY READY to provide the love that the other NEEDS-dont start a relationship to heal yourself because you may cause damage to the other person emotionally

    I think a 70 year old man should wait as long has he chooses to mourn the death of his wife. A year is long enough to show respect for his departed wife. If by chance he enters into a relationship in less than a year after the death of his wife, then so be it. Its his life.

    At least until after the funeral.

    Getting married at the actual  funeral in a joint ceremony gives the bereaved elderly person a sense of continuity, and allows the congregation to reflect on the maxim "In the midst of death we are in life". Or was it the other way round?

    She would want you to be happy, I bet. God will send someone new into your life and I think that you should move on when you are ready.
