Widow and widower dating
The house should not remain a shrine to the late spouse, but there may be some special keepsakes that hold sentimental value or children may want something of their mother or father to remain in the home.
Try to be cognizant of these facts and not insist that everything that belonged to the late spouse be disposed of.
As much as you may want it to, throwing away items will not erase the memories of a former spouse.
Instead, it might cause resentment to rise up in your new partner and/or his/her children.
You might consider the fact that the better the relationship a new partner had in a past relationship, the more he/she knows about how to make unions work.
Keep in mind that the heart is a very accommodating organ.
It can expand to let new people in without kicking out the old residents.
You can gently drop some hints about the pictures, especially if they are on the bed stand table.
If there are children and some of the pictures are family pictures, it is probably unrealistic to think that every picture will be put away.
Know what to expect on anniversaries, birthdays and other days that were special to your new partner and his/her late spouse.
