Parental Grief Reactions and Marital Intimacy Following Infant Death.
Lang, Ariella; Gottlieb, Laurie
Death Studies, v17 n3 p233-55 1993
Examined grief reactions of bereaved parents following infant death as function of marital intimacy and selected parental, infant, and situational variables. Findings from 57 bereaved couples revealed that women rated their grief reactions higher than their spouse. Best predictor of mothers' grief was suddenness of death. For fathers, lower ratings on marital intimacy correlated with more intense grief. (Author/NB)
