Hello and welcome to The Couples Expert Podcast with your host Stuart Fensterheim, The Couples Expert. This is episode 178 of our show. Thank you for joining us today as Stuart talks about something that we will all be facing at one time or another. You may already be there: the impact of retirement on your love relationship. How will you and your partner spend your retirement years? Listen as Stuart talks about how to cope with this major change in your life and what you can expect while heading into this new phase of living together with your partner.
Stuart just returned from a cruise with his wife. There was some worry and anxiety about going to London after the recent terror attacks there. Deciding not to let the bad guys win, they decided to go and have a great time in spite of the worry. He’s renewed and refreshed and excited to be back bringing you the expert advice you’ve come to expect.

Don’t wait until you retire to do the work on your relationship. It’s not about communication skills as much as making sure that your connection to one another is strong and healthy. Talk and plan together about your hopes and dreams for retirement. Make sure you’re in agreement and on the same page about what you want to do with this important next chapter in life.
This is the time for you to enjoy the fruits of your labor. You’ve been working for this all these years, and now’s your chance to enjoy those golden years with your loving partner by your side.
Thank you for spending part of your day with The Couples Expert. Until next week. Stay connected!
