In today’s volatile economic environment, retirement is one of the most important topics couples need to be talking about. However, according the American Psychological Association (APA) a third of adults with partners reported that money was a major source of conflict in their relationship. In fact, people at all stages of marriage find talking about money to be more stressful than most other issues. This survey is further supported by other Harris Polls in which at least 36% of partners in the U.S. confessed that they did not know how much their spouse contributes to retirement savings and another 23% have no knowledge of the value of their partner’s retirement account. This tendency to mute retirement talk however can have long term effects on both the marriage and the quality of life couples have in their golden years.
