A beloved cousin (only in his 40s)passed away in an accident just 3 weeks before my brother in law's wedding.We were all very upset and wanted to not have any music in the wedding. His widow came up to us and said you will do no such thing as after all a wedding comes only once in a life time and music makes it memorable.She promised us that when the music played she would be the first one on the dance floor and that she would be there enjoying for two in all her finery.
On that day we had music but none of us really wanted to dance we had too much sorrow in our hearts. The Lady kept her word. She herself got up the first from our side on the floor and made sure all of us were there making merry .
As a woman I have never felt more proud of being born a woman than on that day when this woman kept aside her personal grief and made sure the marriage would be a memorable affair for all inspite of the sadness.

My religion does not allow such things. But, in Hinduism(Previously) it was there, and even (SATI SYSTEM) (IN WHICH THE WIFE WERE BURNT ALIVE ON THE FUNERAL OF HER HUSBAND). But, Islam permits to re-marry the widow, after completion of the waiting period (Iddat) (4 months after death of husband).
