In Response to RE: What about the Grown Children? by queenie12
"This was after a divorce, which I think would be somewhat different from a death."
Having experienced both, I can state unequivocally that you are absolutely correct. Comparisons between the two are usually superficial and misleading.
After so much time elapsed, I think my children were worried that I was thinking more about sparing their feelings than my own happiness. I had to reassure them that I was doing the right thing for me and I was in no hurry. I knew I couldn't replicate my last marriage but it was the standard by which I wanted any future relationship to be founded upon. It was difficult to explain my feelings so I neglected to bring it up. In hindsight, I would have initiated a conversation and done it much earlier. I just had no idea it was on their minds.
