I have been suffering from this question for a while. Do women have to be with their husbands in paradise? Can I be loyal and good to a husband in this world and make dua for the one I couldn't marry due to his death? Basically, will we be given a choice if we make dua to be reunited with the one we love and wish them to be our partner or will Allah just take away my wish and make me satisfied with my husband even when I pray to with someone else? Or do we not have free will in this matter in the next world and Allah makes all our feelings go away? Thanks.

In principle, a woman will be with the one she was in Nikah with it at the time of any of them passing away.
However, I would like to remind you this is an issue of the unseen which we are not obliged to delve into. Remember, a person in Jannah will not have any regrets or worries and he will be in total constant joy.
Only Allah knows best
