By giving voice to both their struggles and their triumphs, these husbands and wives reveal how they?ve balanced their emotional and physical needs with those of their partner?s, and how the lessons they?ve learned over time have helped them find new opportunities to love, cherish, and live alongside each other in the extra years they have together.

Seen through the eyes of these baby boomers as they move into this new phase of life, we hear in the couples own words how they survived the bumps together and learned to balance their needs with those of their partners. Scarf reveals that, in many ways, men and women in long-term marriages are far happier and more fulfilled in their relationships today than when they were younger.
