Last week, we left you with a post on a debate-provoking case involving the Araguz family. Thomas Araguz, a Texas firefighter, died earlier this month and left behind a widow, Nikki Araguz.

Thomas Araguz, 30, was a Texas firefighter who sadly died on the job this Fourth of July. He was lucky to have found love more than once in his short lifetime. His first marriage ended in divorce, but he later moved on to marry Nikki Araguz, who is now his widow. Or is she?
