The economy has not been reason enough to get couples age 45 to 72 on the same page when it comes to retirement. The second Couples Retirement Study from Fidelity Investments shows 38 percent of couples jointly discuss investment decisions for retirement savings - Since 2007, there are 10 percent fewer couples that report they have completed a retirement plan. And on critical retirement decisions, 60 percent of couples don't agree on their respective retirement ages; 44 percent can't agree on whether they will work in retirement; and 42 percent have different ideas regarding their expected lifestyle in retirement. Overall only 15 percent of couples express confidence in each other's ability to manage finances.
