So father-in-law objects to her behaviour, runs to the Mail, she gets villified, life in ruins etc etc etc.
Please leave this woman alone, unless you have been in a similar position you have no idea how the loss of a partner would affect you, one or two of my ex-service friends have been through this ordeal.
- OLD AND NEARLY FORGOTTEN OLD SOLDIER,
Y'know one of the issues when trying to trace the stories men on WW1 war memorials is that their widows often remarried within a year or two. Loneliness, the need for a companion to help look after children, financial need, all played a part. And, of course, for some it was a release from an unhappy marriage.
And it was nobody else's fucking business.
