    Widow to remarry

    What is the name of your state? GA

    If my spouse died and I now wish to remarry, do I have to get divorced first?

    Only if your spouse was brain dead.

    Gosh - who'd want to get married?! Count yourself lucky that you don't have to get divorced since you're a widow. And emulate Goldie Hawn and just live together. Much simpler...

    As a remarried widow myself, I can assure you that even the nasiest of divorces is a piece of cake compared to losing your spouse. Believe me, most of the time, widows are NOT lucky if thier marriage was happy.

    No you don't have to get a divorce.
    Congrats on moving on with your life and I hope your new marriage brings you all good things. (I know mine did).
