In Massachusetts (and some other jurisdictions) today, you can marry your deceased wife's sister but not her mother or daughter. Keeping the generations in order seems to have been important to some people.

There's a real-life case of deceased wife's sister in _How to Create the Perfect Wife_ (Moore); worse, the husband practically left his wife's funeral to propose to her sister in public.

Also much other misbehavior, mostly inspired by _Emile_; but the obvious victims get out pretty well.
