Are You Ready for Retirement?


Join us for a presentation on preparing for and surviving retirement from author Nora Hall.

Retirement guarantees that couples are going to face new relationship issues. The old rules, the hours, the daily habits…suddenly it all changes and affects both partners. How does a wife cope when her husband suddenly rearranges the kitchen utensils or spice rack to “make it better”? How do husbands build new friendships outside work? What’s the best way for a wife to deal with “Bob the Caboose” who trails her everywhere? What key steps must couples take to collaborate and create a happy retirement marriage?


Nora Hall is the author of the highly praised Survive Your Husband’s Retirement, which contains stories and tips, presented with humor and compassion, for creating a strong relationship that benefits both partners.
