Dear Amy: It recently occurred to me that my husband will never retire.

He is a wonderful guy who absolutely loves what he does (he owns his own business).

Honestly, I thought we would be spending our twilight years together, but as I near my own planned retirement, I see more and more that he will likely not stop working.

Do you have any ideas for me?

Plans Awry

Dear Awry: There are many stages of work between full-on employment and total retirement. Is your husband willing to take longer breaks in order to travel or pursue other interests along with you?

It is vital — for so many reasons — that anyone who owns his own business develop an exit plan. Will he leave his business to a family member, or sell it outright?
