Who says spring chickens make the most beautiful brides? These gorgeous celebs have proven that true love finds us in all phases in life, into our 40s and beyond.
Gigi Levangie Grazer: After her 17-year marriage ended, the author of Queen Takes King found herself back in the dating pool. She divulged to Bazaar why dating these days is a bit like politics - in order to succeed, you've got to play by the (unwritten) rules.
- "I learned to play games the way boys do. When I was hurt, I learned not to call, text, instant message, or e-mail. Instead, I waited like a 'snake in the grass.'"
- "I became a zen master of the koan 'He who cares least wins.' One night, I sat next to a 19-year-old boy at an elegant Hollywood dinner party. We compared dating notes. He was jealous that I had the best excuse of all for avoiding emotional involvement: "I'm still married." He wished he could use that line."
