As Time Goes By


Boomerang Marriages, Serial Spouses, Throwback Couples and Other Romantic Adventures in an Age of Longevity.


Now it's down to two of you. Or down to one. Who do you love? The bonus years, after midlife but before traditional old age, are more complicated romantically and sexually than those glossy images of gray-haired people at the beach suggest. Marriages face predictable stresses of retirement, illness and burnout. Those who become single after the death of a spouse or a divorce confront a chaotic dating/re-mating scene. Yet relationships tend to be stronger and more satisfying with age. You may become bolder in finding new formulas for happiness. And coupled or not, you need a core of people to make up your intimate circle. As pioneers in longevity, older Americans are redefining the institution of marriage, the concept of family, the meaning of friendship and the status of singlehood.
