My husband and I married 6 years ago. My husband's first wife passed away from an illness 2 years before we married. Should he continue to lighting a yahrtzeit candle for his first wife even though he is remarried?

The Aish Rabbi Replies

In such a case, if the second wife does not mind, the candle may be lit ("Gesher HaChaim" by R' Y.M. Tuketchinsky, I 29:8).

May you and your husband enjoy many happy and productive years together.
