I recently was told that because I had only been married for 16 years that my grief was NOTHING, that compared to 39 years of marriage, why I should be over my grief by now. I was floored in hearing this, and I tell ya, it hurt me so much, and this comment came from someone who I care for, I tried to explain that 1 day, 1 year, 100 years didn't make a difference in the amount of grief a person feels, that love is love no matter how long we have it. This person said they didn't believe that, and told me to move on. What do you think? This persons spouse died 7 years ago, mine died 11 months ago. I am deeply hurt over this.
