Let me start off by saying that I know it's her life and her business and she's going to do what she's going to do regardless of my opinion, BUT I just can't get over feeling how wrong this seems. It seems like it's dishonorable to my dad and I just can't be supportive if that. I will never let another man replace my dad in my life and I don't know why she would want to try and do that. It really hurts me and I'll never be supportive of this. I was just wondering if anyone else has gone through this and what your opinions are. Thanks.

An anecdote: I lost my mom about 9 years ago. On the two year anniversary of her death, we had a little get together at my dad's house with just him, my wife and I and my aunt (my mom's sister). After dinner, he took his wedding ring off and said "I guess I'm single now". He started dating shortly after that.
About six months after my mother died, my wife lost her mom. In my father-in-law's case, he was dating 2 months later and remarried six months after that. My wife and BIL were really upset about it, but my dad told us we shouldn't judge until we've walked a mile in his shoes. It's still kind of a shitty thing to have done, though.1

Less than year? O I would be absolutely angered by that. I know you have to move on a eventually and want to find happiness again, but if someone you're married long has recently died and you're out here trying to meet new men less than year sends warning signals to me. It's says that dad/your husbands death didn't fully effect you in some way. Now I know some people do try to seek comfort in others when they're distressed, lonely, or depressed, but if she doesn't seem that way and she's just really excited and getting all doll up to get in back in the dating world... then something is wrong unless you're parents have been divorced/separated?1
