Older adults are twice as likely to get divorced today as they were 25 years ago. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with journalist Abby Ellin who has written about this trend for The New York Times, to shed light on this change in societal norms.

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