If you mean the speed at which they remarried, it was a matter if survival. Men needed women to care for the children while he worked, women need men to support them and their children. No government dolling out benefits, only the workhouse if they had no other means of support.

That's very true, Jebber. I remember being slightly shocked at discovering my Aunt Nelly had remarried just a year after her husband had been killed in WW1. But she had three children to support and how would she work with three young children? Her only option was to remarry.

I've got 3 close but long ago ancestors (all men) who married again within 10 weeks!

One was understandable (handful of young children), though i was surprised when i first found out about it, but one had only 1 child (a girl aged 12), and the other, a man of 60 with grown up children, married a 28 year old spinster, had 4 children (the first died early) in quick succession then died of 'general decline' leaving her with 3 young children.

My uncle by marriage's mother died giving birth to him. His father remarried within three months- to his dead wife's sister.

Yes I've known of this too.  Sadly it wasn't that long ago, only about 30 years, and the children were not that young.

I suppose it was stress of a dying spouse and probably as they had children, they found a new woman/man to marry once their current spouse was dead. Maybe a friend, neighbour, work colleague.
