Today Kristen joined us live on the air to see if we could help her with her husband. She lost her husband five months ago and we were married for seven years. It was a sudden car accident and never anticipated being a widow at the age. A while after her husband past, she met somebody. At first to her it was like a rebound, some companionship and we are creeping up on two months now. She really likes this person and was blessed with her husband and he was the one that she still misses terribly, but Josh has come into her life and it feels so right. She knows it’s soon, but she’s ready to get married again. Her former husband’s family is livid about it and quite frankly so is hers, but this situation has taught her that life is so short and things can change in a second. Should she be slowing down? Is this too soon?
Slacker is the true love kind of guy and totally gets the feeling of people coming into his life and he knows they are supposed to be there somehow, but with all that said, Slacker thinks Kristen is still wounded and this is too fast. He doesn’t think she really knows what she wants. Slacker wonders and he doesn’t want to hurt Kristen’s feelings, but has she even gone through the grieving process?
Steve wanted to know how Josh felt about this and he’s not close minded to it. He understands the situation, but there’s such a strong connection between the two of them that they know its right.
Like Slacker, I believe in true love, but he’s right. This is too fast. I think it’s too fast for anyone that gets into a relationship and wants to marry after five months. Chloe and Lamar is a completely rare scenario and I hope that Kristen and Josh can be like that, but what is that, a 1 out of 10 chance of it really working out. I think Kristen needs more time to grieve, to get her life back on its own two feet again and continue to see where things go with Josh. I don’t necessarily think it’ll hurt to just be engaged for a while, but don’t jump right into the “I do’s.”
