Madden makes the point that it is a test of character to wait and to live with the emptiness. I agree with his point to not have a person get remarried right after losing a spouse. I know a person who did that when as a young bride in college she lost her husband. She remarried soon and her second marriage did not last too long. I don’t think there is a fixed time to give a person about getting remarried. But what advice should be given to someone who asks the question how long should I wait?
