The 28-year-old found comfort in her husband’s brother after he passed away. The couple, from New Hampshire, have since welcomed two daughters together.
Despite her mother-in-law’s warning that her late son “would not like it at all.”
A woman whose husband died of a drug overdose has begun dating his brother since his death.
All was revealed in a recent episode of Truly’s My Extraordinary Family by New Hampshire resident Kaitlin Norton.
The 28-year-old, who had been married to her husband Aaron for four years, claimed that Rory, his brother, provided her with comfort after his death.
In the episode, Kaitlin uncovered that she had initially met Aaron in grade school. When she was 18 and they started dating, they quickly started using prescription drugs.
When she gave birth to their son Camden, the couple took a break for a while, but when he was just six months old, they went back to their old ways and started using harder drugs.
She acknowledged that the two were doing “whatever they could” to get high, including stealing, and their relationship was plagued by arguments.
In the repercussions of his demise, Kaitlin tracked down solace in addressing Aaron’s sibling Rory – who conceded that he had not confided in her when the pair had initially met.
Rory would determine the status of Kaitlin and his then two-year-old nephew on ends of the week which is the way their relationship started to bloom.
Rory stated, At first, we were both hesitant to tell our families about our relationship. We didn’t want them to believe that Aaron didn’t matter to us.
When asked about her own reactions, Aaron and Rory’s mother Jess admitted that at first she thought it was “a little weird.”
However, just a week before Kaitlin was due out, Aaron overdosed and passed away.
She made it clear: “How would Aaron feel?” was my first thought, and I knew he wouldn’t like it at all. He wouldn’t be pleased.’ But when I saw it through his eyes, I realized, “You can’t help but have feelings for who you’re with.”
She closed: ‘ Who my children live with is not up to me.’ Kaitlin and Rory have been together for seven years, and Rory also has a son from a previous relationship.
Camden now refers to Rory as “dad” rather than “uncle,” as the couple has two daughters of their own.
They stated that Aaron would be “very comforted” if he learned about their relationship now.
