About this item

This book draws on international research, comparative international data, and the authors’ own interviews with people in Sweden to reveal older people’s attitudes, expectations, and experiences of romantic partnerships. The book examines the changing structural preconditions of late-life repartnering from both theoretical and empirical standpoints, then describes how these structural changes play out in individual lives and intimate relationships, using their survey data and individual biographies of respondents to give examples. The results offer insight on reasons for initiating and developing new romantic relationships in later life, advantages for social support and autonomy, and preferences regarding marriage and alternative unions in later life.
