How to Cope With The Death Of A Spouse?
Nobody like to talk about the death of a spouse or even prepare for it. The most difficult problem will
be emotional. The loss of a loved one is always a shock and a
strain. The problems here involved are so well recognized that I
need only mention them.

Other emotional problems are centered around the
readjustment of your future. Such an adjustment is usually less
difficult for a man. He can go on with his vocational plans, much as
he had expected to do.
If he is still under fifty or so he can usually
find a suitable woman whom he can marry, and thus pick up the broken
strands of his plans for a home and family.
The woman usually faces a more difficult situation.
Some will have other opportunities to marry, and thus be able to
continue their hopes and dreams. The death of a lover or husband
will end for them any chances for marriage. The loss of these
possibilities will usually mean a rather complete readjustment of
their vocational programs.
If the girl has already been well trained to earn
her living, as every girl should be, her vocational problems will be
less serious. If she is not so trained, her vocational problems may
be serious, especially if she is widowed with children to support.
The financial difficulties which might result from
a death are faced in part when you take out life insurance. Such
life insurance will in most cases, however, be only enough to tide
the family over the crisis for a few years.
Few families can afford, or should attempt to have
enough to enable the family to continue to live indefinitely on its
income from insurance.
Therefore the wife-to-be should give most careful
consideration before marriage to the problem of what she would or
could do in case of the death of her husband.
