Do some people remarry in haste just because they fear the idea of being alone?


A friend's sister lost her husband of 18 years to cancer and seven months later married a man - and one with the same first name of her dead husband. Something very similar happened with my husband's uncle, too. Is it possible some folks hastily remarry (whether after death of their partner or after divorce) because they simply think they are expected to have a mate or fear being alone?
