Hello, all. I'm new here and need some insight.
Hi roller coaster,
Just wanted to say "hi" and "welcome" !
There are a few widowed who post here, and many/most who deal with "blended households" which sounds like alot of the issue.....and a few who have had some REAL issues with moving into exW's houses/deceased wives shrines, etc etc.....
......so I'm sure you'll get some feedback.
Things tend to be slow over the weekend, so be sure to check again after the weekend...
Are you able to tell your DH your feelings re: lack of space?
I am glad you posted this as I might soon be in the same situation. My SO wants me and DD to move into his home but for different reasons. He wants to keep his home because he is insecure in the relationship and doesnt want to end up being single again with no home. Understandable but he doesnt realize he is essentially asking me to do what he himself wont do.
But I am interested in hearing the advice given on this so I can make an informed decision.

I'm glad you see this the same way I do here.
I have experienced a lot of "loss" in my life, starting when I was a child. My father died unexpectedly when I was young. He was the parent I was close to. My mother was in shock, needed her own help, and was not there for me. As a child, I could not understand this. I had a long term R with my college sweetheart and we planned the wedding, he bought a ring, we had it reset...he ended up cheating, falling in love w/someone else. I was devastated.
I don't know how I missed this in order to welcome you to the board RC...duh!
Ok, I was sick for a week and then we had spring break for a week, so I guess I just missed it, by missing so much work.
The choices we make in thought, word and deed inevitably return to us in kind.
