MARYANNE VANDERVELDE Wall Street Journal. Looking for the secret to a successful retirement with your partner? Try watching two children in a sandbox-a boy playing with toy trucks and a girl using a pail and shovel to build sand castles. Chances are good that the toddlers will be quite content. They'll be next to each other, or moving farther apart; silent at times, and babbling to themselves or each other at other times. They will no doubt resolve minor disagreements if they occur-whereas they would probably be fighting if they tried to play with the same toy in that sandbox

In Retirement for Two, psychologist Maryanne Vandervelde, author of the breakthrough book The Changing Life of the Corporate Wife, and human resources consultant, picks up where the standard retirement guides leave off. Vandervelde helps spouses-- nearing or already in retirement--confront, with honesty, respect, and humour, the conflicts and adjustments unique at this stage of life. Vandervelde doesn't give tax or estate planning, or 401K advice; that she leaves to the money men and women (she does deal with the emotional fallout of money and spending, like not having enough). She explores the challenges for couples, who upon retirement find they have many more choices than ever before, and therefore ample room for disagreement and disappointment. Even couples who think they've experienced it all are often suprised by retirements' special challenges. Retirement for Two offers commonsense advice, tackling such issues as:*Where will you live? Will you downsize? Move south or west? Split time between city and country? Live apart/together for some time each year? *What will you do with your time? *What will your relationships with kids and grandkids be like? *What kind of social life do you want? *What do you each desire for the rest of your lives? What happens when you want different things? Have different goals? *Sex and intimacy. *getting strong, staying healthy, dealing with a spouse's illness. Whether you are already grappling with post-work issues, or are approaching retirement age and thinking about how it is all going to work out, here is an invaluable tool you can use to help your relationship--and yourself--survive and thrive through some of the best years of your life.

Excellent summary of little discussed topic that will become more important as the dynamic psychology between coupes changes as they age. People are living 20-40 years longer than they expected, and society has not prepared to deal with this extended life. Not only are their financial pressures,boredom loneliness, illness, death and other challenges but retirement itself produces profound changes in an individual's self perceptions that affect his/her relationships with others expecially the spouse.

I bought this for my own retirement 5 years ago and have continued to purchase gift copies for friends who are ready to retire. It's now out of print so it's hard to find sellers of new copies. This book is perfect for the new 24/7 life with your significant other as it covers the pitfalls and rewards with suggestions of entering into this new life.

Really practical study regarding the transition from the work world to the retired world. My wife and I read it together prior to

retiring and will read it again in a year to gauge our progress and guide the process.

The audience for this book is the same as for her previous work on corporate couples, those together for the bulk of their adult lives, having raised their children and now face life together, day in and day out, for the first time. The advice is generally commonsensical, assessing each partner's preferences and goals, and getting about enjoying retirement especially for an educated, healthy, professional audience. Unfortunately, it is short on advice for developing interests after a lifetime of work, such as getting training in a new field, which could have made a bibliography quite valuable. For those who remarry in retirement, there is nothing about our issues we face, which are similar to any newly married couple, namely, adjusting to a new person in the house, children, pets, likes and dislikes. This is mainly for couples together for 20 or 30 years. It is a good start in an unexplored field and is easy to read and search out useful ideas.

There is so much out there for financial planning for retirement but not so much for other aspects of life after retirement. I really enjoyed the stats, the humor and to realize we all do have expectations of retirement that we haven't thought through or shared with our spouse. I will be ordering extra copies for friends and co-workers who are nearing retirement in the next 5 years or less. I highly recommend this book!!!

If you do not need a book on financies, this is a great book about the psychology of you and you mate when you retire. The professional work I did defind me and my spouse. Retirement leads to a major change. Also, my being gone to school and work all day for 30+ years defined our physical distance, and being retired we are together all of the time, very different! I recommend this to anyone that wants to know what may go through their minds and what can be done by being aware of it. I recommend to all of my nearing retirement friends and their spouces, and will read again. Excellent! There is another that has "...But Not Out To Lunch" that is good about relationship problems that can be an issue in retirement I will start soon. I heard it was very good, as well. Retirement is not like going from CEO to reading in a rocking chair or just playing golf all day, or shopping each day all day. Or like visiting family members that are not used to seeing you much.
