Ask Amy: Widowed man falls for former sister-in-law

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I am a 60-year-old widowed man.

My wife of over 30 years passed away four years ago after a long illness.

My late-wife’s sister and I started spending time together about six months ago. We have many shared interests and have always gotten along very well.

She has been divorced for several years.

Our relationship has turned romantic, and we are in love.

We discuss our future together and want to make this work.


So far we have kept our relationship a secret.

There are adult children on both sides. There are several family members, along with our children, that we will have to tell.

Are we wrong in pursuing this?

How should we tell our children and other family members?
