I can imagine loving couples do stay together. I still have my parents and my parents-in-law but i can picture what it would look like when they are on the other side. My parents-in-law would appear lovingly hugging each other, as they often do in life on earth. My parents would probably appear in the opposite corners of the room, giving each other the finger (just joking...but they are divorced and do not like each other at all). I think just my mother would come through, my father strongly believes the day he dies, he dies. No afterlife. I wonder if that strong belief will keep him stuck in a dark cloud for a while the day he passes away? If your soul know where it has to go it's a smooth transition, but if you don't believe at all that you have a soul, then what happens? (sorry i feel this is slightly off topic of course).

A Timely Subject!
Wow, I was just wondering about this last night. A couple months ago, my gramma passed, and several years ago, my grampa had passed. Last night was their anniversary, and all my aunts and uncles and some of the grandchildren held a moment of silence in vigil at around 8 central time last night. It was a powerful moment and I felt them together, watching over us.
As much as they bickered, and even through a number of trial separations, they had a long marrriage and I watched my gramma tend to my grampa as he finally faded into illness. Little did I know then that I would spend her last week in a chair beside her hospice bed. I've had a hard time shaking her passing, plagued by dreams of her for awhile, and last night's moment was beautiful and healing.

i have often wondered that...i believe it is true...i have wondered about the down side of people who have been married multiple times or had ugly divorces and what would happen if they all bumped into each other...
my dad loved my mom. she divorced him. he has been gone for a while and i was shocked when she said she felt nothing when he died (they were married for 26 years and had 3 children...i dunno just me).
but my dad spent the remainder of his life with a new love and her family where some of the children were younger and looked to him as a father.
the woman loved her husband, but was widowed. she loved my dad a lot. she has since passed....i wonder how that all works out?
i have heard mormans believe you marry for eternity....someone should tell marie........disclaimer: i have nothing against mormans, HONEST!!!!!!

I wonder about this myself. My husband died less than a year ago. I love him with all of my heart; however, I can't really imagine being alone for the rest of my life. I just turned 40. Can a person have multiple 'soul mates'? My dead husband is always in my heart. But what if I meet someone else?
So confusing. I will never stop loving my dead husband...if I ever loved again, would i be betraying him? Diminishing the love that I have for him? Perhaps I am too early in my grief journey to be asking these kinds of questions...

i am sorry for your loss...too soon could be the case...it is kind of an evolving thing, i think. maybe not one that we should try to figure out when we really feel the time is right to move on to another. and i guess i am one who believes the departed one wants us to be happy.
if the aftelife is what i imagine it to be...hopefully it'll all be figured out for us

Have you read this article by Erin?
Soul Mates vs. Soul Connections
All the best to you, and take your time to heal!
P.S. You may also enjoy John Gray's "Mars and Venus starting over", which is about connecting with the love you still feel (rather than the loss).
