If your SO passed away would you ever re-marry?

I know it isn't the happiest thing to talk about. But the other day my husband and I were talking about if one of us passed away would we be ok if SO re-married later on.

We both agreed that in death we would never want our spouse to be lonely the rest of their days. And it would be selfish to make them feel guilty for moving on eventually. We both agreed that it would be ok for either of us to re-marry in that situation. Now if we are both really old and one passes away no re-marriage would be happening. But if we were in the middle of our lives we both agreed it would be ok. 


So what do you think? Have you and your SO had this conversation before?

We've never really had that conversation but I'm sure I wouldn't remarry. My husband is much younger so I assume that he might remarry. When I'm gone I hope he does whatever he wants to be happy.

We have.  We might both remarry, but not until the kids were out of the house.

We have had this conversation. My DH jokes that'll he'll haunt any guy who tries to makes the moves on me. He says he'd never remarry, but I tell him he should if he finds the right person. My kids will need a mom. So I'm not sure what I would do if he passed away because he doesn't want me to remarry but I probably would anyway. Lol.

Yes. I'm not made to be alone and my boys need a father. I've told DH to remarry if something happens to me, too. My boys need a mother and DH deserves someone who will love and take care of him.

We've never talked about if, I don't think I would remarry, but I see nothing wrong with doing so

Date long term, yes. But I could never guarantee I would get married again.

No because I will have 3 daughters and most molestation cases involves the step-father or the Mother's boyfriend. Understand that I work at a police dept so I'm not making a guess, I'm stating a fact.

Yes, we both agree it's best the other one finds someone to carry on the rest of their years with.
If he did it a couple weeks later, I'd haunt his ass though ;0)
