Late to use the phrase

According to many, when your wife dies, you should refer to her as your "late wife" when talking to others.

Some suggest your "ex-wife" but that seems to be so much more common in those who are divorced.

Our marriage vows included "till death do us part."

After 8 months, however, I've only referred to Tori as "my late wife" in conversation one time.

I almost had to force myself to say it.

Over time I suspect I'll get used to it.

There aren't a lot of other options.

  1. It was kind of like after my sister died, and when people used to ask me if I have any siblings. Even though she passed away, she still is my sister. I had a hard time answering that question.
