Dating my deceased wifes sister
My SIL has a beautiful 20 year old half sister (I'm 25) and TBH I sort of have a crush on her.
She looks a little bit like my brother's wife but not to the point it turns me off.
Two of my nephews (brothers) once dated two girls who were sisters.
There was tension when one of the relationships soured and that led to the dissolution of the second relationship.
She lives a couple hours out of town in the same city my brother and SIL live in.
I'd sort of like to let her know how I feel and ask her out, but I feel like my brother and his wife might get upset with me, and I wonder if it's considered taboo to date someone who is closely related to someone you are related to by marriage.
At least one novel, Felicia Skene's The Inheritance of Evil (1849), addressed the topic in polemic fictional form.
Please don't interpret anything you read here as medical, legal, or otherwise expert advice. I am 7 months in, and I have visited my bils a number of times, and its very clear to me that they all view me as their sister.Plus I alwys made rude comments about the relationships and the possibilities.The Deceased Wife's Sister's Marriage Act 1907 (7 Edw.7 c.47) was an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, allowing a man to marry his dead wife's sister, which had previously been forbidden.Don't disregard any expert's advice or take any action as a result of what you read here. i just had to chuckle to myself because my husband was the youngest of 4 boys, and he was the only one married. I could not possibly imagine dating any of them either tho, they aren't my bils anymore, they are my bros! Mariposa, I am also seen by my late husband's family as an outsider.We're friends, not doctors, financial or legal professionals, and we're not "grief experts." But we are here, and we've been "there." I am not ready for dating as it has only been four months since I lost my husband, but I have to get some perspective on something. I don't see anything wrong with it but I think in a case like that I personally would want to take it really, really slow just to make sure it was the BIL that I was in love with rather then similarities I see in him of my LH. but that is not to mean that it shouldn't or can't happen. It has been a year and a half, and while they are all polite to me, well, my F-I-L and his wife are, my S-I-L won't speak to me, I know that they just view me as some sort of emotional obligation.
