Hey Shannon! Relationship Question for December 26, 2013

Hey Shannon, I was married for over 30 years. I lost my wife four years ago. Since then, I have fallen for another woman, also a widow. The problem is, our house looks terrible. My wife was not the best housekeeper, but this is worse. I have tried to talk to her about cleaning, and I even offered to clean up for her, but she refuses. She says I might throw away something important from her marriage. I have tried everything, and I am afraid to let anyone visit. How can we de-clutter two combined houses without hurting each other's feelings?
