Be Ready for Retirement
June 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
A ninety minute presentation to help new retirees discover effective practices for creating satisfying retirement relationships with life partners.
Retirement guarantees that couples will face new relationship issues. The old rules, the hours, the daily habits…suddenly it all changes and affects both partners. How does a wife cope when her husband suddenly rearranges the kitchen utensils or spice rack to “make it better”? How do husbands build new friendships outside work? What’s the best way for a wife to deal with “Bob the Caboose” who trails her everywhere? What key steps must couples take to collaborate and create a happy retirement marriage?
In this workshop, Be Ready for Retirement, consideration will be given to:
- Common pitfalls of early retirement
- Common concerns of retirees in a committed relationship
- Effective practices for creating empathy and support for one another.
