We are thrilled to announce the next stage in the Legacy Project!
We have received so much interest in the advice America’s elders have for marriage and committed relationships, that we are embarking on a new “legacy project” specifically on that topic. We’ve heard from any younger people that they deeply want more advice on issues like choosing a partner, overcoming conflict, dealing with the stress work and child-rearing can have on a marriage, and having a happy marriage for decades. The overwhelming response to my blog posts on the Huffington Post (here and here) also shows how much interest there is in this topic.
We have created a page on which we invite people 60 and over to share their lessons for having a happy and successful marriage. We are not restricting answers to marriage, however – anyone who wants to share advice about long-term committed relationships is more than welcome! (If you aren’t over 60, you can of course join in too, but the project is based on advice from individuals 60 and over).
Here’s the link for the Cornell Marriage Advice Project. Please spread the word! We hope to get advice from a wide and diverse audience of older Americans!
