Shalom,

Is there room to be more makel with regards to letting an suffik asish ish marry when she is old and therefore cannot have children (there is no problem of mamzerim)?

Answer:

No, there is no room here for leniency. The stringency of Safek Eishes Ish is not on account of children who might be mamzerim, but rather on account of the special stringency of the prohibition, and this is irrespective of the matter of children.

Best wishes.
