I am 33yrs old. I lost my husband several years ago

I am 33yrs old. I lost my husband several years ago. He was the love of my life. Life was hard when he died because I depended on him for everything he was alive. I was a full-time housewife. But after his death, his younger brother really stepped up to the plate and took care of me and our only child.

He was there for me, supported me emotionally and financially. And before we knew it, we started having feelings for each other. We fell in love.

We’ve been keeping our relationship secret from the rest of the family but now he wants to tell his mother about us because he wants us to get married. I am nervous because I don’t know how the family will take the news.

He has never been married or have any kids. I have known him for as long as I have been in that family. We are both the same age.

Are we doing the right thing by being together? Please advise me. Thank you!
