Though it may be legal the only reason that I can think for marrying a dead person would be to gain access to any wealth they left behind. After all, you can't take it with you!

"For you brought nothing into this world and it certain that you will carry nothing out."

What an odd law. :? :?

In Maryland, it used to be a law ("It was a marital license to kill,"), where a man could get away with killing his wife if he suspected her of infidelity. No proof needed. Just a suspicion was good enough. Although if she were caught in the act that fact might be useful during sentencing. The men were not tried for murder. It was for a lesser charge.

The word exists. I don't know of any real case where a person has suffered from such a malady. That would be very sad indeed. It could mean a person is afraid of their own mother.
