Katie Couric is looking to settle down, but is her new beau, financier John Molner, "The One"?

That remains to be seen, but Couric, 55, said she definitely wants to get married. 

"I would like to [get married]," she told Parade. "I'm the marrying kind, even though I've only been married once. I like the idea of having a life partner." 

Couric was married to Jay Monahan, who died of colon cancer in 1998 at age 42.

"I was lucky to meet him when I did because I was ready," Couric told the magazine. 

"By then I had seen too many women give up the idea of having a family for their career. For a time I thought I'd do that, too. But I think I had an epiphany and I decided ... I'm going to try to meet someone I can marry and have kids with and who will be a life partner for me." 

After her husband's death, Couric's two young daughters were her sources of motivation.

"When you're confronted with terrible suffering and loss, you feel so utterly powerless. Debilitated. You can choose to end your life, to stop living. Or you can try to heal and have a sense of purpose," she said. "When Jay died, I had a 2-year-old and a 6-year-old. I wanted to provide them with a happy home; that's what enabled me to go on." 

Couric and her boyfriend Molner -- who is head of mergers and acquisitions at Brown Brothers Harriman  -- are "very happy together," according to a New York Post source. 

Couric personal life is not the only thing blossoming; she is preparing to debut her new syndicated daytime talk show "Katie" on Sept. 10. Her first guest will be Jessica Simpson.
