Dating after widow
Recently, she worked with television producer, Victor Lewis-Smith, on the BBC Four documentary The Undiscovered Peter Cook, where she gave unprecedented access to Peter’s private recordings, diaries, letters, photographs, and much more.
Peter Cook, who was voted the Comedian's Comedian in 2005 and known for his double act with Dudley Moore, divorced his second wife, Judy Huxtable, in 1989. She channeled her grief into setting up a charity, the Peter Cook foundation, in 2000, which aimed to raise £7m to build a music centre and home for her daughter and other disabled adults.
Part of the reason was, I had been disciplined my whole life with my standards as they related to sex.
In dating I had the mentality of Of course this wasn’t in an arrogant way, but if I was going to give every single part of my being to someone, you better believe I wanted to be with someone who valued my conviction in these matters.
Read the book and you’ll understand what I’m talking about! Why would I give a marital privilege to a guy who was only committed to me at a boyfriend level?
My girls and I met at the church early that morning. If you remember she’s a cosmetologist, so you better believe I wanted her to do the most important updo in my life!
I was the first child to get married in our family.
If you grow up in a home where you’re not taught about boundaries, expectations and why they’re important, you’re probably not used to thinking in such a way because it’s normal to do whatever you want in your life and relationships. I laughed when he called me this because I didn’t get it at first. Being disciplined and being a woman of character was worth it in every way.
He said, “You know, you’re the girl every guy has heard about but no guy has ever actually met.” I liked that. There are still women out there who have high standards, that won’t settle, that love Jesus and that value guys who do the same.
Lord knows I’ve done plenty of other things I’m not proud of. Yes, it’s true, some times we have to learn the hard way.
