When her husband is missing, or is dead, or has
renounced the world, or is impotent, or has been degraded
by sin, — on any of the said five calamities befalling a woman,
law has ordained another husband for her.
- Sri Parashara Smriti 4.30
If a woman has led a continent life, after her lord
departed his life, she wins a region of bliss after her death,
like to the well-known male observers of a celebate life.
- Sri Parashara Smriti 4.31
