Question: Should you remarry after your spouse dies?

There is no ideal time to remarry. Legally speaking, the first marriage ends the moment the spouse dies and the person becomes free to remarry. Marriage is a good thing, when you are in it with the right person. Remarrying should not be rushed and should be worked at as one would work on a first marriage.

Is it okay to remarry after your spouse dies?

Theres no rule or timeline when it comes to getting remarried following the death of your spouse. Like grief, the “right time” for everyone is different. For some, it may be a few weeks, and for others, it can be several years. You dont have to stop loving your deceased spouse in order to find love again.

Can I collect my deceased husbands Social Security if I remarry?

If you receive benefits as a widow, divorced widow, widower, or divorced widower — You cannot get benefits if you remarry before age 60 or if you are disabled and remarry before age 50. If you remarry before you turn 50, you will not be entitled to survivors benefits, unless the marriage ends.
