There's nothing wrong, of course, with an author putting their own political or moral views into the mouths of their characters - within reason. Even so, poor old Tolkien was rather out of step with modern ideas on marriage and relationships. It's one thing to be opposed to divorce - that's still orthodox Catholic doctrine, after all. But when you even have serious moral qualms about widow(er)s getting remarried after the death of their spouses, that's hardcore...
