Dating a widower with a daughter
He has told me that he’s really struggling with this because he made a promise to them that if they didn’t think it was right, then he wouldn’t do it.But, he also tells me that he loves me and my kids very much and that his kids love us, too, but don’t want to be with us on a permanent basis.

I asked why and he said because they don’t want someone with kids.I love him and his kids very much and really want this to work because on some level I believe God and his late wife brought us together. I guess I’m not sure whether his kids are still grieving the loss of their mother and aren’t ready yet, or if they don’t want to share him with someone else, or what the deal is.My kids are devastated because they also love them with all their hearts.I would love any insight from those of you who have gone through this. I haven’t gone through this particular experience personally although I work with people all the time who are considering new relationships with partners who have children.
My husband was also a widower of young children when we got together, however he did not feel the need to ask the children if it was okay to remarry.Most children don’t see themselves ever wishing their parent to remarry so unless he’s prepared to remain single for the remainder of his life, he may not want to leave those decisions to them.
