Breaking News: Husbands dying on wives makes them happier
This is so fucking funny to read shshshhss
Probably because so many women alive at 85 now stayed married because they felt they had to. All generations of women have put up with and continue to put up with Some Shit, but that era of women? Man, they have some stories.
My Nana was married for over 50 years to an angry, violent, abusive man. As they got older he became a withdrawn curmudgeon with a drinking problem. He told my father on his deathbed, “I have no regrets.”My Nana has always been a pretty active, engaged person, working part-time and involved with her church and various charities. But after he died she really came alive. He never wanted to travel, but after his death she started taking a bunch of trips with her friends. She stayed active until this year, when she fell and hurt herself and had to be placed in a nursing home. Even in the nursing home she seems happy, engaged in activities there and making friends with other residents.I think the thing that says the most is something that my mom picked up on. “Before he died she always spoke so softly. On the phone you could barely hear her. Now that he’s gone she speaks up.”
