The article does not elaborate on current practice. In addition to the link posted by Viriditas, I refer to this article:  Certainly, a comprehensive survey is needed to cover current practice. If sufficient and trustable information is found, criticism may be then raised. Ntalamai (talk) 21:29, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Since it is not a legally recognized marriage some may choose to do it as a memorial, but most (at least those who live in non-remote villages) people whose fiance/e died before marriage just hold a funeral instead. As for few man marrying his dead fiancee, I read an article recently documenting such incidence http://news.wenxuecity.com/BBSView.php?SubID=news&MsgID=1009237 However it is unlikely that the man involved is doing it for traditional reasons and rather he is just grieving for his fiancee.
This seems to have happened to the victim in the famous "My dad is Li Gang case", as can be seen here and is how I came to this article. ("Shortly after they got home, Chen Xiaofeng was 'married' to a local boy who had died recently, and on the 7th, her body was buried") --188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:00, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
