Marriage 501, Lecture 21: When you're gone

Me: The woman in this book has been a widow for two years. She's my age and she's putting herself on so she can date.

SH: So?

Me: My question is, "Why?"

SH: Wouldn't you want to date if I died?

Me: No way. I'm never getting married again. Not dating. One and done.

SH: What about [wxyz]?

Me: Don't care. I'll learn to do without.

SH: Because it could never be the same after me or because it's not worth the trouble of a relationship?

Me [long pause]: Option one, of course.
