If your wife or husband died, would you ever marry again?

    If your wife or husband died, would you ever marry again?

    I've been lucky enough never to be faced with this, but many have.

    No, I'm fairly sure I would never marry again.  I have been married 42 years and got myself a good one the first time around. Great and loving husband and father. I just would not want to risk a mistake or trying ti fill his shoes. Once the grief got down to a dull roar, I would be content to be alone.

    It is certainly very difficult for me to imagine being with anyone but my husband. However, I feel that if the right person came along, my husband would want me to build a relationship with them and try to find happiness instead of loneliness.

    I don't think i'd ever find someone like my husband. He is a terrific guy. I would certainly not marry again.

    If I fell in love with someone and we both wanted to get married then I would. In my heart of hearts I believe your deceased spouse would want you to be happy.

      You're the only one that could possibly be a guy. Maybe not. That's interesting.  I would hope that if I die, my wife wouldn't think I was so selfish that if my life ends, so does hers. Being open-minded is best. You never know what tomorrow brings.

    Probably not, but I wouldn't say never.  I guess that is something I would deal with if and when I ever needed to

    If I had been asked this with my first husband I would have said yes. Now after an amazing 2 1/2 years with my second husband & being madly in love I couldn't imagine being with anyone else so I wouldn't go looking for anyone .
    First married at 18 so would spend time traveling etc .
    If after a while another loving kind sexy thoughtful , considerate guy with a great sense of humour came along ..... who knows.....

    At this moment that seems unthinkable and I would say, no way, I would never marry again, but I really don't know, because I have my mom's example, she married again and I'm glad she did, because otherwise I would constantly be worrying about her being alone and I'm sure that she would feel lonely too and being the way she is, never wanting to impose or anything, she would probably keep to yourself and.... So long as we find someone nice, I think that maybe marrying again in the smart choice... as to whether this marriage with this second man would be like with my first husband... for sure no, especially considering my husband is the love of my life, my twin soul...
