"Surviving Retirement As a Couple"

Spending time with your spouse is a given in retirement, but how you approach it can be the difference between a good retirement or an anxious one.  Miriam Goodman, the author of Too Much Togetherness (Bonneville Books), has interviewed hundreds of couples on the brink of retirement and found many are anxious and worried about being together all the time. This  book helps readers prepare psychologically for challenges to their long term relationships as they subtly change from career to retirement and the next stage of their lives.
