This paper is intended to explore the direct relationship between the widow's denied mourning and the influence of the loss of the husband manifested by a difficult or denied mourning. This research shows us that the widow has to assume the role of her departed husband immediately, and that it is quick, urgent and, most of the time, painful. The resulting dimensions of the difficult mourning that trigger in her the decision to resume and continue the work of the deceased.

We interviewed fifteen widows and highlighted the dimensions that surround the post-husband's loss. We thus discovered the keys of reading of this specific recovery.
