Elders can provide 'Lessons for Loving'

Mr. Thomas

The statistic is cited often. Half of marriages end in divorce. So where should young people turn to for advice on how to have a happy and healthy relationship? This week, on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with gerontologist Karl Pillemer, a professor at Cornell University. Pillemer says senior citizens offer a treasure trove of advice about love relationships. He interviewed elders for his book "30 Lessons for Loving: Advice from the Wisest Americans on Love, Relationships and Marriage."

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care,"... WRVO's health and wellness show Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
