There is just something really wrong with that. A child who loses a parent isn't going to go back to normal in a month's time; a person who loses a partner after 30 years isn't going to be happy-go-lucky again in a month.
Why is it that these people are determined to make perfectly normal, natural human behavior a disorder?
