Okay, that title sounds a bit snarky, sorry,
I retired (i.e., quit work) in '96, my husband officially retired 2 yr ago. Somedays, I feel like his retirement amounts to house-arrest for me. When it was just me, i could spontaneously go out whenever I wanted. He, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to be home 24/7. And not do much but sit on the sofa watching bad t.v. re-runs. We don't have travel-the-country money, but we're ok. Whenever I suggest we try to find some kind of hobby, anything to DO besides house-potatoes, he complains that anything costs too much. He used to say he'd spend time learning to play his keyboard, and he hasn't touched it. He thought I could teach him N.T. greek, and he doesn't want to do that. I am going stark raving mad. Is this considered normal for retirement? Help, any suggestions of what to do besides eat?
