  • They both are having the problem as it is due to the relationship changes and maturational changes occuring they haven't experienced before. He's now retired and they haven't adjusted. Sometimes an insecure man needs reassurance of his partners love and I have seen women acting out in jealousy because it reassures her mate he's still desirable to her and might also be attractive to other woman. How is he talking to "other women"? What's his body language like? Is he giving any notion of trying to spur her on? (like smiling when she reacts)The rationale isn't nearly so much, as what's going to help the two of them avoid divorce and have a harmonious household. Counseling counseling counseling. I have seen a lot of marriages fail shortly after retirement because they simply fail to adjust to the life changes, and now is really when they need each other the most. It's lonely growing old without your life's mate. Divorce is horribly stressful too. Talk to them, tell them your fears, lovingly, and I can't emphasize enough to do so "without pointing fingers", and ask them to go to counseling because you love both of your parents and they need to communicate better. Finances a problem? Many good full gospel churches have great free counselors.
