Do you know what your partner wants his or her retirement to look like?
Couples may want to have to ensure they are on the same page when it comes to their retirement plans.

Whether you’re retiring at the same time or years apart, it is helpful to develop a plan that encompasses each other’s values, dreams, goals, and individual visions for what constitutes your ideal retirement.
You can’t do that without good communication and a willingness to compromise.

could be more than 30 more years of their lives together.
