Best wishes to Anna! She is getting married again.
This will make her life simpler in a way (and not just in wardrobe issues) but will make it more difficult for others.
Why?

Is this the same Anna from your other puzzle? Is her age relevant? Her arthritis? The fact that she was previously married? The fact that she is widowed rather than divorced?

Is this the same Anna from your other puzzle?Could be, but not necessarily so. Is her age relevant? Her arthritis? No to both. The fact that she was previously married? Yes! The fact that she is widowed rather than divorced? No, the puzzle would work for a divorcee too. In fact, it was inspired by a divorced person of my acquaintance.

Will it make life difficult for her friends? Family? Acquaintances? Anyone she comes into contact with? People she's never met?

Is there anything relevant about the person she is marrying?

Will it make life difficult for the others financially? Will it only make life difficult for them in their dealings with Anna? Their lives in general? Are names relevant?

****************SPOILER*************
Anna's brother is also named "Jack" as well as her husbands, previous and current. So when other members of the family and friends have any reason to differentiate them, they are: just plain "Jack," the brother, who has precedence; and "Jack A" and "Jack B", in chronological order.
Aren't families great? but also complicated!

Nice puzzle. I actually know several people whose brother's/sister's significant others have the same name they do. Back in school I had a friend called Nina, and her two brothers' girlfriends were both called Nina too. (:
