grief following death of someone whom is deeply loved..... takes time<br />
two to five years is usual<br />
.... but each must judge for him/herself when the time is right.<br />
it is about the need to process the loss, more than out of respect for the deceased. the deceased just want the one left behind to be happy.<br />

When you have healed mainly from the loss of the spouse and when you find that you are truly in love and not just lonely from missing your spouse. Only you know when you would feel comfortable getting married again.<br />
My mother died when she was very young. My father who was also young, never remarried. He dated and had girlfriends over the years but he never remarried.
Some time close to when you estimate the estate money is about to run out.
If you are truely in love and not just trying to fill an empty space from your loss then go for it. Some folks aren't cut out to be alone for long. I think if your spouse loved you he/she would want you to be happy. Just make sure its for the right reasons.
I believe that traditionally it's 1year.
just do it when you want to. why wait because you're supposed to? i know it sounds bad, but if you're over it by 2 years and you wanna get married to someone else, then do it.
if your happy to marry again, go for it, i wish you well for the future :)
well good luck 2 ur friend :) xx
What ever works for you
whenever you are ready to and have found the right person
