    OK, I know it’s way off topic. But I have fallen in love with an Eastern Star. I feel as though she has the same feelings for me, but she is the widow of a Master Mason! Am I breaking my vows? Should I tell her that I feel the same way about her that she does about me? Should I tell her how I feel about her, my heart is telling me something that my vows feel as though I cannot proceed. Please give me some advice Brothers, Part of me tells me that her husband would not want her to be alone, but I cannot intrude on the relationship of a widow and her Master Mason husband!

    How would you be breaking your vow?
    Nothing unlawful about dating a widow....

    You are overthinking here IMHO.

    Unless you plan on taking her by force you aren’t breaking your vows (at least the version I was obliged by).

    They have no relationship anymore if he has passed away. Till death do us part. There is nothing illegal or immoral about dating a deceased Mason's former wife.

    Marriage is a very earthly thing. If there is an afterlife, I doubt our dearly departed are in heaven sitting around jealous and concerned about those left behind. Its all a bit more grand than our minds can wrap around it I would imagine.
