The Psychological Well-Being of Older, Recent Widows.
McGloshen, Thomas H.; O'Bryant, Shirley L.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v12 n1 p99-116 Mar 1988
Examined the impact of the husband's death on the psychological well-being of older widows. Positive affect was related to widows' religious involvement, number of siblings, and support from children and their families. Negative affect was associated with other deaths (in addition to that of the husband), housing dissatisfaction, and, unexpectedly, employment experience outside the home during marriage. (Author/KS)
