One issue addressed on this daf is remarriage after the death of close relative. Here we see an interesting difference between the death of most relatives, even father or mother, and the death of a spouse. In the former case, one can remarry after thirty days, whereas a man whose wife has died must wait until three festivals have passed before he remarries. Why is there such a difference? And what about a woman whose husband has died? How long must she wait before she remarries?
