How will retirement affect your marriage?

Retirement audio story 5 of 8

09 May 2018

In our 4-minute Retirement Story podcast you can listen to below, four retirees tell us about how retirement affected their marriage. You’ll hear stories from:

  • Kay about what she and her husband do independently to avoid problems when they spend time together;
  • Cathy-Lee about what she and her husband did when he retired so they started their retirement together positively, and
  • Brian about how he avoids being in his wife’s pocket all the time


This podcast is the fifth story of an 8-part Retirement Stories audio series we’ll publish on this website for your listening pleasure. Do you have your own retirement story to share? We’d love to hear it. Please email your story to
