What do you think? I went past a cemetery today and saw one close to the road, and thought "not sure I would want that." Don't know why, it just seemed odd. My dad passed away in '09 so mom is a widow. They purchased a plot and a couples headstone before dad died, so her spot is already there next to him. She has no interest in other men (she's 90) but what if she did? Wouldn't that make it awkward if she did remarry? I remember seeing a headstone in our local cemetery once. It was from the 1800s. The husband, evidently, had lost his young wife when she was only 20-something years old. His name was also on the stone, but his date of death was never recorded. So I assume he was still young too and moved on, married someone else, maybe even left the area, and probably was buried with his next... or other next... wife. I could see if a couple died in a sudden accident, sure, plant 'em together. But I don't know... otherwise it strikes me as a little weird. If you had a couples headstone/plot and your spouse was gone, would the fact create a sense of restriction??
