What Box Are You? (Widows Determine Their Status)

check-the-box-e1333060260467

One woman told me she no longer felt like a widow once she was in a relationship, even though she hadn’t remarried.   Yet there are others who claim they will always be widows.  A friend said her mother still checks “Married.”  Her logic?  “He’s still my husband, I’m still married to your father.”   Are new boxes needed?  (“Happily In Love Again Though No Papers Have Been Signed” or “Eternal Widow”)  What box do you check?  For those who have switched from Widow to Single, what prompted the change?
