  男:但是我们肯定不能逃避这样一个事实:很多老年人都很孤独,而且很多疾病缠身。

  W: No, we can't. But we must also remember that the proportion of such people is no greater among the 60-70 age group than among the 50-60 age group.

  W: Why should we expect people to suddenly change when they reach their 60th or 65th birthday any more than they did when they reached their 21st?

  女:为什么相比21岁,我们更期望人们在60岁或65岁生日的时候突然改变呢?

  M: But one would expect there to be more physical illness among old people, surely.

  男:但是人们肯定会认为老年人会有更多的身体疾病。

  W: Why should one expect this? After all, those people who reach the age of 65 or 70 are the strong among us.

  女:为什么会有这样的期待?毕竟,那些活到65或70岁的人算是我们当中强壮的人。

  W: The weak die mainly in childhood, then in their 40s and 50s. Furthermore, by the time people reach 60 or 65, they have learned how to look after themselves.

  M: But don't many more parents live apart from their married children than used to be the case?

  男:可是现在父母和已婚孩子分开生活的情况不是比以前更多吗?

  W: True, but this is because many more young families can afford to own their own homes these days than ever before.

  女:没错,但这是因为现在有更多的年轻家庭有能力拥有自己的房子。

  W: In other words, parents and their married children usually live in separate households because they prefer it that way,

  女:换句话说,父母和他们的已婚子女通常生活在不同的家庭,是因为他们更喜欢这样,
