Gifts, Travel, Family Relationships & More

Among the problems that many Baby Boomers experience as they get older are the ways their relationships change ... whether with their spouse, their adult children or their elderly parents.  Consequently, over the past few years I have written numerous posts about retirement and family relationships and you will find links to those articles listed below.

These posts have covered a number of difficult topics including the issues of moving in with your adult children, getting divorced after age 50, and healing your family relationships.

Closely related to the topic of family relationships are the topics of gift giving, travel and ways to keep busy after retirement.  I have included travel in this category for two reasons.  First, many of the trips seniors take involve visiting their family members.  Second, traveling anywhere as a couple, even to have fun, can sometimes put stress on our relationships.
