How it can happen

How it can be avoided

Unhappy spouse One person is interested in outdoor sports and the other cares more about visits from grandchildren Find a retirement locale that makes both of you happy
Not enough interest You move to a community that does not have an organization or activity that is important to you List your retirement interests, including leisure activities, volunteer opportunities, churches and clubs, community services, cultural activities, adult education classes, etc. Make sure the community you are considering meets those needs
Unseasonable A community to which you were attracted during a vacation turns out to be unappealing at other times of the year Visit during the off-season, or consider renting before making commitment
