I started my grieving then because life changed at that moment.
My mom passed away five years ago and I know I would not have been ready to deal with him dating 2 months after her passing.
Hard to say but our loved ones that are gone aren't coming back no matter how much all of us want it we just have to try and find our way now.
Your father will always be your father and your mother the same. hope things get better wildrose Hi all, I think we have to be careful in judging the grieving person, your father may have been grieving long before your mother died.
It's only in the last year that he has expressed any interest in seeing someone and I'm ok with that.
Is there any way you can have a honest dialogue with your dad and tell him that while you are happy for him, you are not yet ready to have this woman in your life? Your family could always elect to do something different if he insists on bringing her -- perhaps have your own Thanksgiving at home or dine out or go to your in-laws.
