Love and Lust

Some writers in this section extol the joy of finding Mr. Absolutely Right, telling about good relationships where contentment and peace are dominant themes. Some speak of the juicer sides of love, where hot grown up sex adds its own sizzle.

There’s a tale of bad marriage choices and the writer’s struggles to create a stable and productive new life. Still another writer suggests that we can’t have a successful relationship with another until we have one with ourselves.

And this section wouldn’t be complete without insight into the surprises — disappointing and jubilant — that await formerly married boomer women who find themselves single again in the age of the Internet and relaxed sexual mores.

Love and lust may strike us when we least expect it. But when the connection comes with the right person, few things are better!
