You helped me find love after my wife's death – with my ex | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: FOLLOWING the death of my second wife from breast cancer, I grew close to my first wife, whom I’d divorced 20 years earlier.

I wrote to you because I was worried whether our new romantic relationship could work.

I’m 62 and my first wife is 60. My second wife was 53 when she died.

My other concern was about telling our now adult children from our first marriage, who had been very hurt by the divorce.

You didn’t judge me and said we should give it a go, making sure we had discussed and resolved the issues that made us split.

You sent me your support pack Looking After A Relationship.

As for telling the children, you suggested waiting until we were sure things were working.

I’m delighted to tell you that, several months on, things are great.

My ex-wife – now partner – and I are happy and both determined that this will work.
