In Islam a step father can never marry his step daughter if his wife die or they get divorced; the same rule apply to the step mother and her step sons.

Considering all the pulpits on this board reminding us daily that step mothers and step fathers are "legal strangers" to the children they help bring up, then yes, it's legal to marry a step-child after the wife dies. They are, after all, legal strangers.

Let's see their hypocrisy come to light on this subject.

Can anyone tell me if there are states where this is legal? I am also going through this and I would like to present this option to my stepdaughter. She is feeling the same way I am meaning we would like to begin a relationship but are curious about the legal issues. She is 30 and I am 58 and we would like to know which states ( if any ) allow the two of us to marry. She and I have never been so much in love as we are now. For me, my love is so strong for her it hurts deeply not being able to be with her all the time. Please Help

Confused Re: Can a step father marry his step daughter after wife dies?

I feel your pain. I am in a similar situation, the only differences are her mother is still alive & we are younger but with the same age difference.
I know of nothing in U.S. law to stop you but there may be religious & social issues to deal with.

no. (750 ILCS 5/212)(from Ch. 40, par. 212)
Sec. 212. Prohibited Marriages.
(a) The following marriages are prohibited:
(1) a marriage entered into prior to the dissolution
of an earlier marriage of one of the parties;

(2) a marriage between an ancestor and a descendant
or between a brother and a sister, whether the relationship is by the half or the whole blood or by adoption;

(3) a marriage between an uncle and a niece or
between an aunt and a nephew, whether the relationship is by the half or the whole blood;

If there is no blood relationship, there is no impediment to marriage. A 58-year old man marrying a 30-year old woman, as the post states, is setting himself up for predictable grief. A bit of age difference usually does not matter once one is of a certain age, but a whole generation? Not incestuous. Foolish.
