a PSC In The News reference, 2014

"A good sex life can help older couples cope with illness and other difficulties" - Washington Post. 03/03/2014.

Center postdoc Amelia Karraker comments on recent research (Galinsky & Waite, 2013) linking a healthy sex life with marriage quality among couples 65 to 74 years of age: “This paper helps contribute to our understanding of why poor health is associated with poor marital quality. Well-being in older age incorporates both psychological and physical well-being as well as sexual well-being, which can occur at the intersection of those two.”
