Widow conservation was a type of marriage in Protestant Europe in the early modern age, when the widow of a parish vicar was married to her husband's successor to ensure her economic support. This practice was common in Scandinavia (Änkekonservering/Enkekonservering) and the Protestant parts of Germany. It is related to other forms of widow inheritance, including the levirate marriage known in the Old Testament as yibbum.
