Matthew 8:14 Now when Jesus had come into Peter’s house, He saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever. 15 So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them
Is there any tradition concerning his wife? We know who the woman with the issue of blood is, we know who the woman at the well is, why do we not know who St. Peter's wife was? Was she already deceased and Peter was simply caring for his mother in law so there was no need to know who she was? Or perhaps she was not mentioned as the rich man was not by name since he was a "bad" person?
I guess I am caught in the text of "his wife's mother" versus "his mother in law". The latter would, to me at least, suggest his wife was already dead.
