We talked about marriage- he wasn't sure he wanted marriage ,maybe at some point in the future.
Anyhow, I made a HUGE mistake as I have a problem getting my thoughts across.I also grew up in a cult, and it's hard to "live on the outside looking in" at a family.He would take the kids places and I wished that I could be a part with them... It was hard at first,because I have never dated a widower. I learned that it was best that he have his life with his kids, and then spent time with me.
