…Ops! If you are old and live alone your story is “NECESSARILY” sadder than stories of younger generations

How so?  The sad story is to read a journalist who gives for granted that living alone in older age must always be sadder than in younger age.  In this case Carl Hartman, the reviewer of the ubiquitous Going Solo (it is all over the web and the media) in the San Francisco Chronicle.  The incriminated sentence reads “Klinenberg also collects interviews with older people who choose independent living rather than available alternatives as long as they can, though their stories are necessarily sadder than those of young people” (italics added by me).
