When men outlive their spouse they often die of a broken heart

Women being nurturers, men being the bread winners.  The roles played are common.  The female takes care of the health of her partner, even makes healthcare decisions for him.  Sudden she dies.  The surviving male may struggle with everything from loneliness, to cooking healthy meals and remembering to take medicines.
