Love the second (or third) time around

Listen

Guests: Helen Fisher and Pepper Schwartz

[REBROADCAST] Americans are living longer and increasingly, after the loss of a loved one either by death or through divorce, older folks are looking for love again. But the decision to enter the dating scene can be complicated, especially since dating rules and rituals have changed. How do you meet someone online? What do you do about grown children who may not approve? And, of course, what about sex? This morning on Radio Times, it’s “love the second time around” with anthropologist HELEN FISHER and sociologist PEPPER SCHWARTZ.
