This weekend my hubby and I went to a get-together with other friends, mostly couples with kids. There was one man there, who was there alone and was acting extremely attentive to my kids. He was playing with them, holding them, etc. I found it a little strange at first. Thought he might be a child predator or something. At one point, my hubby chose to ignore me when I was trying to get the kids under control. This guy stepped in and helped out. I asked him if he had kids and he gave me a sad looking yes and nothing else. I later found out that he is in the process of a divorce and doesn't get to see his children very often and he is very upset about that. I don't know all the details of his situation, but I couldn't help but think to myself-wow, see what a little perspective can do for your life? Here this guy is, who seems so sad about not seeing his own children, and loves to be around any kids at all, while my husband can't be bothered because its annoying or inconvenient. While we are trying to work on our marriage, sometimes I think that kicking my hubby out would be a good idea, just to let him see what's on the other side.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
