Firsts are always hard. The first time a well spouse attends a simcha alone is fraught with insecurity. Did she do the right thing? Is his wife doing all right at home? What you say to them, how you support their decision, may be the deciding factor on whether they will attend a simcha alone ever again. The right comments, the welcoming comments, may help bring a bit of joy back into their lives.
