The Christmas cards to me was soooo rolleyes my husband died not long before Martin, and last year our Christmas card was also our pregnancy announcement for our third baby, so I certainly faced a bit of a dilemma about what to send out (if anything) this year as I wasn't too sure anyone wanted to see a happy smiling picture of me and my kids without my husband (the baby was born after he died so we didn't have a full family photo).  

I'm also very sorry for your loss; best wishes and much love to you and your family. <3

Thanks a bunch to all you lovely ladies! I will say in Emily's "defense" (not really though) and I'm sure all the other widows who have posted on here would agree that there's not really any right way to approach life after death of a spouse.  What she did is truly the wrong way, though.

I am constantly comparing FF to this other IG account I follow, where the woman's husband died in an accident just before they could announce the first pregnancy. Behind the scenes she met someone pretty fast too, but the IG itself was all about honoring her husband, trying to be positive in the face of grief, being thankful for their baby and sharing her life with her in-laws. She did a beautiful post on the first anniversary of her husband's death (the real anniversary, not just six weeks) then a week or so later she announced she was moving in with her new boyfriend. Family and friends in the real world would have known about this relationship for months and it did nothing to change her close relationship with all her in-laws.

She had started a fundraising charity in her husband's honor and today (2+ years on) she posted a beautiful photo of the boyfriend with her son – the boyfriend is wearing one of the charity t-shirts, and she wrote a post thanking him for being a father to her little boy while still honoring the father that he lost.  

Huge contrast. 

That's Amanda Griffiths. I follow her, her sister and her Mom. They ALL have found new love after losing their husbands. It wasn't too soon but definitely not like FF.

sorry to hijack. i fell down the rabbit hole too, and her sister Bre is dating Nick (amanda stanton from bachelorette's ex husband!) this is so weird. my world's are colliding

She got called out on IG. The post on Merci chocolates. But she's deleted the comment.Other women commented. I'm surprised she didn't delete their comments. Her daughter is precious. Looks just like her dad. Gotta pay the bills.

Nothing says "we're so grateful and giving back" like a sponsored post! Jesus, anyone who can follow this woman and not be appalled must be blind. She is disgusting.

I kind of want to vomit.

I agree, everyone grieves in their own ways, but yeesh lady. I've been sick with mono for what feels like decades and I know I've been under a rock but I didn't even know she was DATING, let alone married.

is she a sociopath? Does she miss Martin? How does this all work? I'm sensitive and grieve for forever so I obviously am seeing the situation through my own perspective

Anyone else catch that Lydia referred to 'Daddy-Martin'? Does that mean the kids are having to call them 'Daddy-Martin' and 'Daddy-Richard'? Ughhhh.

 

Also that post was so poorly written. I don't understand the narrative Emily's trying to push now. It's like she's saying 'hey guys, look at what a nice guy he is' like it'll distract from the fact that the whole situation is f**ked up.

Omg, it sounds like sweet Lydia (who looks so much like Martin that it is almost painful to look at her adorable face) was trying to hide her sadness from Richard to protect him from it in her own little way. I don't think she was made happy by him looking at her as he seemed to feel…I think she was trying to hide her feelings when he was looking at her. Also, she already calls Richard "daddy"? This is so f**king sad. I hope those kids are in therapy. And Emily, too. Richard doesn't sound like an asshole per se, but this whole situation is heartbreaking. I can't even imagine.

That is exactly it. "it's okay, guys, he's so NICE so it's all fine! It's fine! IT'S ALL FINE".

Worse. Sounds like Richard is "Daddy" and Martin is "Daddy-Martin". Nice little down-grade.

 

It's appalling. I call my step-father "dad" now but I made that choice when I was around 10. It was a way of letting him know I accepted him as a father-figure etc. If I was FF I would insist my kids call the new "father" by his first name to begin with. If they want to call him dad later on that's their own decision. The kids already have a "daddy". Ugh.

Also, I have been reading GOMI for months, finally registered. This whole situation is so awful. On one hand I do feel bad that she's probably gone off the rails and this is her coping mechanism in adversity (it's a much nicer thought than her being a cold hearted psychopath).. on the other it makes me sick that, in my opinion, Richard has jumped into Martin's – still warm – shoes. If he honestly is the nicest sweetest bloke in the world (which he obv totes is because his post says so rolleyes… ) he would NOT do any of the things he has done. No nice respectful person would marry a new widow who's clearly messed up, take over as "daddy" so quickly, agree to couple/marriage announcement Christmas cards…  even if the one you loved begged! Be supporting, yes. But back off and have some respect!

 

Her behaviour can be slightly forgiven in some cases because it could be grief. Him … I seriously dislike. others-221
