Recent Widowhood, Remarriage, and Changes in Economic Well-being.
Zick, Cathleen D.; Smith, Ken R.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n1 p233-44 Feb 1988
Examined how changes in family composition due to death of spouse, and subsequent remarriage, affected economic status. Found that death of spouse translated into substantial economic loss, especially for widows. Economic gains for both widows and widowers who remarried were generally large compared to those of persons who remained widowed for at least five years. (Author/NB)
