    Do you believe it is okay for someone to get into another relationship if their partner passes away?

    I think it's completely okay.  Life has to go on, and I wouldn't expect someone to stay alone forever in the unfortunate event that their original partner passes away.

    Yes, it is okay. Vows are until death do us part.  Once the person has accepted the death of their partner and can move on a little bit, then it might be time to find someone.  Only the grieving spouse knows when it is time to move on but it is okay.

    Of course! Life is for the living.
    Anyone who loved you would not want you to be unhappy. Love and companionship are good things. Moving on is not the same as forgetting. One would not be expected to stop breathing, eating, or sleeping if their mate died. Life goes on.

    I believe it's fine but only after a decent amount of time for grieving the lost loved one has passed. It's like the three-month rule for break-ups. Otherwise, the widowed partner will be viewed as someone who never really loved their partner wholly or something. If s/he doesn't care about what other people have to say, they s/he can go on and love someone else. Only s/he can tell whether it's already time to move on.

    I would want my partner to get on with her life, I would want her to be happy. Hopefully she doesn't do it the next day tongue
    But yeah, as soon as possible. My wish for my partner is that when I pass, she moves on and has a long and happy life.

    Yes.  If it was a loving relationship, s/he who has died would want happiness for his/her living survivor.  It is not an indication of an atrophy of love for the passed, but merely a desire to find love, and not stay stuck in the past.

    Well, I think your have to mourn your loss, reflect, tie up loose ends, clean out the closets, treausure your memories and then move forward. I think it takes 2 years to be ready emotionally to even beging thinking of dating. Time helps to heals loss.

    Yes, after a decent amount of time passes. The person has to decide for themselves and know if, and when they are ready to start a new relationship.

    After a certain time, yes. However, I entirely doubt the new relationship will be better than the last one. Well, that might be my situation.

    I don't see anything wrong it if the person has had time to properly grieve its up to them to make that next step in life. Personally I would want my partner to move on with life and find someone else to love. Just because someone moves on with someone else dose not mean that the one who has passed is being replaced it simply means they are moving forward and finding a new love opening a new chapter in there life.
