Widows and Widowers Mortality rates for both men and women were high in Europe during the early modern period. Men frequently were killed while working under unsafe conditions. Women often died in childbirth. Both sexes were subject to disease and the lack of adequate or effective medical treatment. The move to North Country added further complications, especially in the Southern colonies where the climate was particularly unhealthy for European settlers. Until the 1680s, only one in three Southern marriages lasted for more than ten years without one or both partners dying. While Northern colonists had fewer climate risks, mortality rates remained high compared to modern times.
