Love Never Fades

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Love is an important resource in human beings’ lives. Still, love in old age causes prejudices and paradoxical feelings even though emotions and the ability to love do not disappear along aging. The research on love has concentrated on adolescence; and thus, senior citizens’ love has remained in the shadow. The aim of this chapter is to describe how the older people describe their experiences of falling in love.
