Very Confused

anybody know how to handle this one or any advice? Married (3rd) time 46 y/o wife approx same age. Menapausal,alchohal heavy, pre-menstural and we just went to her sons funeral age 21. Married 1mo and 3 days and I Love her dearly but somehow I've become the enemy even though I'v done the Natural by being by her side through this devastating ordeal. I feel selfish because I'm reaching out for some advice as though if she walked through the room right now she woould feel Ultimately betrayed

Mizz is right. Don't push her with her grief, it is a time schedule that only she can say, I've have friends that have lost someone close to them and the pain doesn't go away it just reduces to a point where you can start to live again with out breaking down.<br />

She will get there, just be supportive and understanding, yes she is going to yell at you bc you are there don't take it personally, (easier said than done I know) but if you can stick it out, and when it is overcome (mostly) you will be the better for it.<br />

Let us know how it goes.

Your wife sounds like she is devistated - and I am sure she is if she just buried her child. She is grieving - and this takes time. Give her time - and then if she is not better, counseling, etc. You have only been married a month.

Give her space. Then in a few months, consider counseling.
