A personal aside.
During the celebration of my late spouse's life, which was held one week after he passed, an acquaintance questioned me about my marriage--saying that he wanted to "understand" it (thereby implying that it was somehow abnormal). I asked him to specify what he meant, but he could--or would--not.
Further, he notified me that someone, whom I'd only just met, told him that I "wasn't a real wife" to my husband. He failed to explain this assertion.
A peculiar incident that has puzzled and pained me for months.
