This 4-Part Workshop Series for Surviving Unmarried Partners, Significant Others, Fiancés and Fiancées meets every Tuesday in August at 8 p.m. Eastern
Survivors are encouraged to take part in all four workshops in the series. We request you sign up at least 24 hours before you attend your first session so that we can ensure the integrity of the group and answer any questions you may have.
Please make sure to note the details in the What to Expect section below.
To lose a romantic partner is devastating. To have this loss compounded by the complications of not being married when they die can bring along a whole host of complications, pain and struggle for identity. For surviving significant others, we not only lose the person we love, we also lose the future we were building towards.
In this four part online workshop series we will explore topics such as identity loss, exclusion, financial challenges, family relationships, anger, resilience and more. We will come together to explore the challenges and possibilities that surround the grief and rebuilding our lives and identity.
Whether you were dating your person for a short time or a longtime unmarried partner, know that you are welcome in this circle, your love matters and your stories deserve to be told.
This group meets every Tuesday in August at 8 p.m. Eastern.
