Bump!

I posted this almost a year ago, and I am still interested in finding information on that topic.

When you say remarriage do you mean only after divorce, or any second marriages? I ask because I'm sure I've read stuff about 2nd marriages in treatises on widows. As for divorce, I don't know. I'll see if I can dig anything up.

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

Both divorce and other cases. Anything the Fathers wrote, would be great.

See St Gregory Nazianzus' Oration 37, which presents a detailed argument why second and even third marriage should be allowed, pace the tradition in the Latin Church, which allowed for no remarriage even at that time.
