From what I've read so far I gather that most people here were legally married so perhaps legal issues were tidier than mine at the time of your partner's death. What I'm wondering is if anyone had legal complications with wills or life insurance after your partner died. I wasn't legally married but my partner and I had been together for eight years and were engaged. Immediately following his death his brother and daughter "raided" our condo, taking his laptop and emptied his desk. They refused to acknowledge our engagement at the funeral or in his obituary (designating me as his "longtime companion"). His daughter is contesting his will (actually saying that he died intestate) which left half of his estate to me and half to her. They tried to get me to move out less than two weeks after he died. It's been hell, to put it quite plainly! Grieving is hard enough without all these other ugly issues. I'd be interested to hear any other experiences similar to what I'm describing. Thanks!

my husband is dying. I try to do as much as I can to take it off his plate. I keep making mistakes, making him mad, making him wish he was dead. I have to be perfect. I don’t know what to do. I love him so much I just want him to be okay. I want him to be around and enjoy our daughter it I don’t know how to get him to see any positive in life.
Hi I have been seeing a 60 year old widower (DOD 5 yrs)as a companion for over a year. We have been doing pretty good taking it slow. We have been to weddings,funerals,numerous family parties,holidays together. So several weeks ago he doesn't remember my birthday. I am hurt but not going to make a big deal of it. We have a graduation party ,his sister,daughters and I are discussing birthdays....
