"Retirement is a Time of Change in Lifestyle and A Time of Adjustment"," It is also a time of adjustment.
Sometimes, the time at which one member of a couple retires is different than the other.
Factors that could influence these feelings include:
o If the retirement was a choice.
o How the retiree enjoys unstructured time.
o The acceptance level of the person retired to take on more household responsibility.
o How flexible the couple is to make a new marital deal.
o The attitude of the retiree toward the partner's work.
Good marriages are built on making deals about responsibilities, keeping the deals, renegotiating the deals when events change and a couple's ability to assist their partner when one gets overloaded.
The working spouse needs to accept their work is leading to the quality of life they will have, in the form of income, when they retire.
Too often people want a quick fix to major life changes.
