Report No. 81

3.3. No termination of widow's right.-

According to judicial decisions, section 3 of the Act of 1856 does not expressly terminate the guardianship of the re-marrying widow1. It merely terminates her preferential right2. The court has a discretion in relation to the appointment of the guardian of the children, though ordinarily, the court may appoint a person other than the widow3.

Incidentally, section 3 provides for the appointment of a guardian of the person of the minor children, but not of the property.4
