Dickinson, George E.; Fritz, Judy L.
Journal of Family Issues, v2 n3 p379-84 Sep 1981
A content analysis of (N=116) marriage and family texts showed that only one-third devoted at least a sentence or two to death in the family, with widowhood being the most frequently discussed topic. Suggests death, unlike divorce, does not seem to be defined as a crisis by family sociologists. (Author/RC)
