The looming reality of retirement often influences the decisions people make about their family. From how you choose to finance a child's college education to concerns about familial dynamics, retirement brings up a lot of unique issues.
Many couples who have remained married throughout their working lives may look forward to retirement with excitement. However, as that time finally approaches, there can also be fear or anxiety about how you will handle retirement as a couple. Couples spend so much of their adult lives focused on caring for their children and on their careers that they don't maintain their relationship with their spouse.
