I CAN’T use the phone without my recently retired husband tapping his watch or buy food without him querying the price. He’s questioning everything.
The other night I shouted at him to get out of my way in the kitchen and he broke down saying he felt as if his life was over. How do I save our marriage?
JANE SAYS: Clearly your husband still has a lot to give, so calmly discuss what he could do next. Is mentoring or volunteering in his old profession an option?
What activities or causes could he get involved with? He has to realise this is a difficult time for both of you, but life doesn’t end here. This is the beginning of an exciting new stage. Make plans, look at your strengths and seize the day. Above all, hold your nerve and keep communicating.
