Abstract

This paper is about elder people’s rights. It is about how law views the aged and how adult guardianship fails to address the real interests of the elderly. Within this context, Anna Nicole Smith’s opening Newsweek story is only an example that illustrates how social and legal relationships to elder guardianship law are represented by stereotypes and popular impressions surrounding stories about rich old men who decide to marry young women. This is a stereotypical story that can be found in various societies ever since biblical times.
