This is something many wives worry about even before their husbands retire. We interviewed a number of people on this topic, and here’s how Angela sums up her husband’s pending retirement.
“It won’t be a bed of roses. Larry doesn’t have a lot of outside interests other than work. As for me, I have lots of activities to fill my time. I love to cook, have dinner parties, read, go shopping, have lunch with friends, and get my spa treatments. So when I think of Larry retiring I really worry about how and it will affect me and my life. I want him to find things to do without me so I can continue doing what I want. The truth is I really love my personal time and doing things at my own pace.”
