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.
