Patrick Swayze's Widow, Lisa Niemi, Is Engaged - Engagements, Lisa Niemi, Patrick Swayze : People.com

I am very happy for her.

Lisa Niemi has found love again.

The actress and dancer, who lost her husband of 34 years, Patrick Swayze, to pancreatic cancer in September 2009, is engaged to jeweler Albert DePrisco, 58, her rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

"Albert proposed to Lisa on Christmas Eve," the rep says.

The couple met through mutual friends at a birthday party for Niemi and have been dating for a year and a half.

He's been dead since 2009.
I am aware of that. But it still begs the question - how soon is too soon? 2 years? 3 years? 6 months?

You didn't seem like the kind of person who would ask that sort of question about any other individual's circumstance.
No idea what you mean by that.

But have read about some women who are engaged only six months after the death of their husband, which I think is way too soon. I wonder if there is any acceptable time frame as to when a person should start dating again after their partner dies? Its a fair question, I think.

Most people don't have a hive mentality, we aren't one size fits all, she's an individual and it's her right to move on when you feels like it, it's not up to us to decide when how soon is too soon. Do you ever give it a rest?
Sorry Boop for busting in on your thread like this. I'm done.

You have said women should be able to abort a baby the day before it is due but now you question when a widow should start dating again.

I expected a live-and-let-live attitude from you. I would have expected a celebration of others' happiness. I am surprised to hear even a whiff of sanctimony from you about another woman's life choices, much less this doubling down on the question in a way which is a hijack of a congratulatory thread. When a woman goes through a profound experience such as losing her partner, soon enough is when she says is soon enough. It is not the business of judgmental people who have never met her.

No worries. Between you and Amelia, there's really nothing left to say. :thup:

I understand that question because I grew up with black widows. And I don't mean to make it a joke. But accessorizing was easy.

Black on black oh that will work. Never a color choice.
