Publisher's Summary

A Couple's Guide to Happy Retirement is the most comprehensive audiobook devoted entirely to relationship issues in retirement. Not a treatise on money management, this is a much-needed guide to the psychological aspects of retirement and how to make your retirement relationship happy, fruitful, loving, and successful. Written by a psychologist specializing in work and family issues, and drawing from actual accounts from retired couples, this audiobook:

  • Helps you prepare emotionally for the dramatic life changes during retirement
  • Coaches you to find new purposes to your life beyond work
  • Nurtures the relationship with your companion to strengthen your friendship and love
  • Explores sexuality after retirement and how you can enjoy each other as much as you did as a younger couple
  • Recommends strategies to successfully deal with differences around money, time together versus apart, housework, and family relationships.

It is crucial that couples prepare themselves and their marriages psychologically for what could very well comprise a quarter of their lives. A Couple's Guide to Retirement explores how to do that - so that you'll have the time of your lives.

    "great retirement planning tool"

    Most books about retirement focus on the financial side of it. This book focuses on all the other important stuff, like relationships, where you choose to live, how you spend all that non-work time and what retirement actually is.
    I think this book is most useful for folks that are nearing retirement. It offers a range of subjects that people should think through before actually retiring.

    "Useless diatribe don't bother reading this."
    Would you try another book from Sara Yogev, Ph.D. and/or Debbie Feldman?

    No not really. I'm sure they are great at what they do but my wife and I were so absolutely bored by the lack of concrete information that we just fast forwarded. After finally finding out the top 10 things you can do section i discovered it was useless like all the other information in the book.


    Has A Couple's Guide to Happy Retirement turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, in the future I will read more reviews and listen to the excerpts.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Debbie Feldman’s performances?

    No sir.


    What character would you cut from A Couple's Guide to Happy Retirement?

    Everyone.
