LUNA, Ivania Jann. Narratives of widowed men in the experience of conjugal mourning. Nova perspect. sist. [online]. 2019, vol.28, n.64, pp. 32-46. ISSN 0104-7841.

This article presents a qualitative research that aimed to understand the narratives of widowed men experiencing conjugal mourning. Three men were interviewed who were at the time of loss at a specific time in the family life cycle. We used the qualitative interview in depth and in the organization of the data were used the coding procedures of the Grounded Theory. Thus, three thematic categories that constitute the dimensions of the experience of conjugal mourning stand out like: 'say hello again', 'let go' and 'move on'. The narratives produced allowed the bereaved to reconstruct the system of meanings and took place in two directions: restore self-related meanings before loss, that is, keeping alive the relationship they had with the wife; and to construct new meanings for the self in view of the role that was being announced in the situation of mourning, that of a widowed parent in a changing family and social environment.
