Question: Can you still be married after your spouse dies?

Legally you are no longer married after the death of your spouse. A person whos lost their spouse may have made a vow to stay “married” for the rest of their life even after their spouse dies. Marital status is a matter of personal choice in social settings.

Can you remarry if your partner dies?

So, legally you are no longer married and are free to remarry but there may still be issue in regards to any assets especially if your partner died intestate. Legally you will still be the next of kin as there has been no divorce or financial order extinguishing that right.
