Yes and I would actively seek one out

It's highly unlikely, but anything is possible

As awful as being on the dating scene was, with people's mind games and ghosting, I certainly hope I'm never on the dating scene again (and would, of course, be crushed if my spouse died). But I really hate being single. So if the worst happened and my spouse died, after an appropriate grieving period, I would hope to find someone else. There'd be no replacing him, but I hate being alone.

Also, if something happened to me, I sure wouldn't want him to spend the rest of his life alone either. I know he would get lonely and I would want him to be happy, and I'm not going to care by then if he finds someone else because I'll be dead.
