Dating a widow/widower and being unable to discuss the displays of photographs of the Dear Departed is a bit like being a sexually active teenager who doesn't feel she knows the guy well enough to discuss splitting the cost of birth control.
If you need a silence breaker try, "Do you still miss your husband?"
We have in fact discussed the display of the Dear Departed. We have also discussed her feelings for her deceased husband. She loves him and he will always have a special place in her heart. The photos went out of the bedroom only to re-appear a few weeks later.
By the way is there a proper label for her former husband: dead husband, ex, former husband, deceased husband, Joebob, ???
I was curious what the opinion of people who may have dealt with similiar situations was. How big an issue do I make of the photos? I know I would never move into a house with another man on the wall. I presume(correctly?) that most people would feel the same way.
