Jul 12 '21 at 16:52 comment added user19357 @AmritenduMukhopadhyay that's because the first part is my perspective where I said that widows were mostly remarried in the same kin only. There is reference to it but you will find many examples in itihasa literature or known history ...
Jul 12 '21 at 14:03 comment added user19357 Widow remarriages were always there in society but women were advised to marry among the brothers of their deceased husband only. One more incident to qoute, when vichatravirya died without any child, satyavati asks bhishma to take ambika and ambalika as his wives but bhishma refuses to maintain the honour of his vow to remain celibate.

Jul 12 '21 at 9:25 comment added Amritendu Mukhopadhyay @YDS I wanted examples of widow marriage from Mahabharata. My question is not about whether scriptures support it or not.

Jul 12 '21 at 7:59 comment added YDS Does this answer your question? Remarriage in Sanātana Dharma
Jul 11 '21 at 14:24 comment added nick012000 "Because in British India, Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar had to fight to legitimise widow marriage in Hindu society." In British India, weren't at least some Hindus burning widows alive? There's a rather famous quotation on the subject by one of the British colonialists: goodreads.com/quotes/…
