Widows, Widowers, and Loss

“Widow. The word consumes itself.” ~ Sylvia Plath.

When a person loses their spouse or partner we refer to this as widowhood. A woman who loses her husband is a widow and a husband is referred to as a widower. Depending on the strength of the bond and the length of the relationship this can be a devastating loss.
