When Your Marriage Meets Grief

When Your Marriage Meets Grief

Four years ago, our preborn child Noah died through miscarriage. Today, I’m over at The Better Mom talking about how Ted and I grieved this loss very differently.

Just as we brought differences to the way we cooked, drove, and parented, we brought differences to our loss and the way we processed it.

It was hard to figure out how to grieve together when we grieved so differently. But we slowly – and often clumsily – navigated it. And, as we did, we continued to grow together, rather than allow the loss to tear us apart. How did we do this? One way was by allowing the other to grieve as they needed to, even if it wasn’t how we preferred.

I go on to share three things we remembered in the process that helped us. You can read those here.
