Should a husband tell his wife that cardinals are not dead relatives?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma came from Benjamin and is about the Cardinals. Here is his email:

Hi Jaime. My wife recently lost both parents. Her mother died at the age of 91 and her father died soon after at the age of 93. Recently, my wife saw cardinals in our yard and told me that her parents were coming to visit her. At first I just laughed a little, but she really means it. She truly believes that the cardinals in the courtyard are the spirits of her deceased mother and father. We’re not very spiritual people but all of a sudden that’s what she believes. It’s been going on for about three weeks now. Do you think I should sit down and talk to him about seeing a therapist. I find all of this quite disturbing. I hope your listeners can help me. I love my wife and I want to make sure she’s okay. Thanks


Well Benjamin, I’m one of those people who thinks cardinals can be my loved ones who come to say hello. My sister recently passed away and suddenly I had a cardinal at my manger. NEVER in five years has there been a cardinal in there. So I believe it. And it’s okay if you don’t. But I don’t think she needs a therapist for that. Whether it’s true or not, it makes her feel better. This is what is important at least to me.

What do you think? Let’s help Benjamin and let me know about the TRY the Facebook page.
