First allow me to offer comfort for your personal loss. I do not know the circumstances of their passing, but I know it's always painful to lose someone you love.

Congratulations on finding someone to share your personal pain and sorrow with. I'm sure you've been a huge blessing in their life as well. Sharing a common burden can draw us closer together. 

What would make your previous martial status, or the loss through death, make you exempt from fornication laws? I believe that when you can answer that question, you will have your answer. 

Yes, you are free to marry again. God bless you if you do. But don't be deceived by the enemy. Your body is still the temple of God. 

Be Blessed

Having sex without being married is considered fornication, that is a sin. We are to be married so when the desire becomes overwhelming, our spouse is available to fulfill that desire. Most likely the Holy Spirit is convicting you and this is why the question has been on your mind. There is no way around it but to be married if sex is supposed to happen. We must be careful not to fall into the notion that having sex out of marriage is an ok thing to do as this thinking gives the devil a foothold.
