If a Jewish man's wife died, he would naturally observe the Yahrzeit on the anniversary of her death. Would he continue to do so if he remarried?
My question comes from reading about the Yahrezeit today for the first time (I am not Jewish). It sounds like a beautiful custom that acknowledges the deceased's impact on a person's life.
While thinking about the custom, I began to wonder if a remarried man would continue the tradition as his new wife might be angered and see him as holding onto the past. On the other hand, his continued observance might encourage his new wife with his loyalty and she would know that their life together will not be swept aside should she die before he does.
