Abstract [en]

The article discuses the impact that the death of a spouse would have on households in Sweden between 1814 to 1894. Widows were left without a provider and had to rely on other sources of money while widowers had to find a way to accomplish domestic tasks. The mourning period's length was different for widows and widowers, which could or could not complicate remarriage. Many widowers chose to remarry. A widowed parent also could enter a child's household or the household of a non-relative.
