Research has shown that more than 60% of widowers remarry after losing their wives, while less than 20% of women who have lost their husbands do.
The low percentage of widows getting remarried could be due to a sense of confusion between their need to start a new life with a new partner and missing their departed spouse.
It could also have to do with timing. There is speculation that women need more time to mourn their late husbands, while men look for a replacement experience sooner.
However, this does not mean that widows don’t ever get remarried. The truth is that feelings of love and guilt can at times co-exist, but when the time is right- which varies from one person to the other- women, too, take the next step with their new partner.
This is exactly what Ellen- in the video below- did.
After being a widow for several years, she decided to get married again to her new partner. However, while this life change revitalized her on the inside, her looks still remained the same and she felt she needed a change as soon as possible.
And that’s when The Makeover Guy comes into play.
Christopher Hopkins, entrepreneur and cyber-star, who has been giving dramatic makeovers on television and on the Internet since 1990, was Ellen’s last resort.
She let him envision a look for her that would make her 30-year-old self shine through her 63-year-old body.
“I feel like I’m in my early 30s on the inside and I’m 63 on the outside,” she said on camera.
As she explains, she has had the same haircut and hair color for several years and she’s fine with that, but she could use a change. Actually, she points out that the current color just lets grey hairs show through more than they should.
“I’ve pretty much had this look for twenty years and I don’t have a problem with it, […] kind of like my hair color the way it is right now because it’s letting my grey come in.”
And then, she lets the famous Makeover Guy change everything. She just trusts that he’ll do his best to make her look beautiful and fresh- and, indeed, he does.
A few moments later, the video shows a completely new version of Ellen.
Her new self still has short hair, but this time it’s darker. Her make-up is also done, and she looks at least ten years younger.
The darker hair color also makes her look sweeter and more beautiful. Ellen just loves her new self, which also shows!
“I came in as a blonde,” she says, “I’m going out as a brunette, and I love it. I was meant to be a brunette!”
The viewers of the video are just as excited as Ellen is about her new look!
“Her color really brings out her wonderful complexion. Just the perfect color!” someone wrote.
Ellen’s makeover video has reached more than 150k views since last year when it was updated and we are sure it has already inspired several people to make a change in their appearance that will make them also feel better.
