Being A Relict

The word Relict is a mid-15th Century Old French word for “Widow”. 
1. Is there a right age to be a relict?

2. Did you take the vow,“to death do us part serious?”

 3. Companionship; yes or no? How soon? 


Is there a right age to be a relict? 

Well I assume any widow left behind will say no, although most are in their 60’s or 70’s by the time this season comes along. My Mom had just turned 60 years old when that season happened to her 42 year marriage. That was almost 12 years ago now. I see groups of widows in restaurants at times and they seem as if their doing well. If you talk to one alone she usually says staying busy helps. I myself  only 50 years old at this time gets very angry at the thought of NOT enjoying retirement and facing these thoughts of being left behind! 

Did you take the vow, ” to death do us part ” serious?

I was a very young bride and although I took all of my vows seriously, way back then I gave no thought to the vow, ” to death do us part ” when your young I guess you don’t think about your spouse passing away. Most people my age are on second and third marriage. At times I am not sure why we are still together. 

What about you the reader? Where do you stand on these thoughts?

Companionship; yes or no? How soon?

Honestly I have not decided my answers. I have met several type of people the past couple years. Yet not sure how I feel about this situations. 

Please share some thoughts or experience!
