These are people who felt trapped in a bad marriage or onerous care-giving duties and widowhood offered relief and escape. The old paradigm would have seen this absence of grief as emotional inhibition or a form of denial, but in our view, these are people for whom bereavement serves as the end of a chronic source of stress.
