Is there a secret to marriages that last? Can you keep things hot as your hormones cool? Are you making unrealistic demands that can actually doom your marriage?
It seems that Boomers have changed the traditional vows of "for better or worse" to "for better, and better." Host Robert Lipsyte turns to his panel to see how the institution of marriage is faring under the strain. Therapist Terrence Real, author of "The New Rules of Marriage," argues that Boomers have new and unprecedented goals for their marriages: they want relationships to stay as hot-and fascinating-as they were in the first blush of romance. Suzanne Braun Levine, former Ms. Magazine editor and author of Fifty Is The New Fifty: 10 Life Lessons for Women in Second Adulthood says that as women blossom in later years, it's often hard for their marriages to keep up. And Dr. Janet E. Taylor, of the Family Circle's "Ask Dr. Janet" column, explains how conflict can provide the roots for new growth in marriage.

How can you get around feeling old, insecure, and expendable in the workplace? Lipsyte asks someone who knows--Hearst Magazine President, Cathie Black. And she is ready with hard-hitting, practical advice on staying relevant. The author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller: Basic Black: Tips for Getting ahead in Work (and in Life), does not flinch from tough talk: That old business suit does not look as good as it did ten years ago and you really need to be hip to what's happening in popular culture.
