Abstract

One of the most disruptive transitions faced by a household is the death of one of its members, which causes a discontinuity in household consumption patterns. A phenomenological study of the household transition due to death of a loved one was conducted and several themes were discovered: the sanctification of the loved one's possessions, communication problems in households in which a child was lost, and role structure changes in households in which a spouse was lost.
