In the beginning retirement age was 65, a full year beyond life expectancy.
Today, that is no longer true. Current actuaries reflect life expectancy for men in the US at 76 years and women in the US at 83. Canada and most of Europe is 80 and 84 respectively.
So what does that mean for the two decades plus that people are living beyond retirement?
Just think of all the areas of married life that are going to be affected and that couples will have to address when one or both retire. And the relationship issues couples will have to become aware of and deal with; and the relationship skills couples will need to learn and use.
My guest for this episode, is Sara Yogev, Ph.D., the author of A Couple’s Guide to Happy Retirement: For Better or Worse…But Not For Lunch. Dr. Sara recognizes that it is crucial that couples prepare themselves and their marriages psychologically for life together in retirement.
