‘Today, we look at yet another epic “struggle” and conflict with which countless have taken serious issue: Death vs. Divorce’ ..’how can anyone realistically compare divorce to widowhood?’
Notable quotes: One widow was told by a divorced acquaintance that she was “lucky to have a fresh start”. Another heard, “You’re lucky your husband died; at least you’ll never have to see him again”. “I wish my husband would drop dead too.” Or how about, “Being a widow is much easier than divorce; at least you know where your husband is”.
