The Western part of the Church, consisting of the Roman and Anglican divisions, has never taught that such marriages are lawful in the sight of God.
Not until daringly impudent, for the Church is a keeper and not a breaker or dispenser of God's commands.
As it seems probable that no efforts will be spared on the part of many people in this country to make it a law of the land that a man may marry his deceased wife's sister, it is incumbent on all who fear God to know what His law is on the subject. The one is made by man, the other by God, which is immutable.
Therefore, if it be the law of God that "a man shall not marry his deceased wife's sister," it is not a question for debate at all.
Now comes the Anglican division of the Western portion of the Church of Christ.
We hold the same doctrine, gathered from the Word of God.
contrary to the law of God, as laid down by Him in His written Word.
Basil, like all the others, is giving the custom and law of the Church as founded on God's command.
Also the Eastern par up to this day forbids such marriages as being illegal.
I think the issue at hand cannot be answered outrightly, coz alot of constraint shld be taken into consideration, first, wht happed between u and the girl/bou b4 u left her or him, this hv to be cleared if ur ex-gurl\boy's brotha is much intelligent and hansome/beautiful and two of u hv a mutual understd, then no then happun.
