Followup question: can child of deceased marry mourning yr


Rabbi Moshe Leib Halberstadt

Nisan 26, 5783
What about her father? What is his restriction re the wedding, since he lost his spouse, (her mother)?
Yes. A child of a deceased can get married during the year of mourning. The father participates as usual. If it is within 30 days of mourning and there is a custom in his family or community to serve some people at the beginning of the wedding, he should follow the custom. Otherwise, no restrictions. Please note: Year of mourning is only for a parent. For a spouse and other immediate relative, mourning is only 30 days.
