I am not actually a widow but I feel like one. My significant other died a few weeks ago at the age of 39, he had heart disease and was awaiting a heart transplant...we were planning to be married by summer of next year after the transplant and health issues calmed down some. I feel like because we weren't married that people don't take my grief seriously...after all he was just my boyfriend, but to me, in my heart he was the person I was going to spend the rest of my life with, and he shared that commitment...we were just trying to be responsible and not rush things. Is there anyone else on here that has had a similar experience with losing a committed partner and feeling like you don't matter cause you were just a girlfriend/boyfriend to the person?
