I had a horrible nightmare that my DF died. It was very real and upset me very much.
But it made me think.
Would it be wrong for a wife to join a religios order if her husband died?
If she were religious and lived her faith, but chose marriage at first, could she choose life in an order after marriage?
Provided, of course, there are no children to take care of. (And I know this is very important.)
Is it possible?
Does the age matter in such a situation?
What if there are children, but they are grown-up?
What about the other way around, if a husband wanted to do it after the death of his wife?
(Again the presumption of no children who depend on him.)
