North Devon charity says couples who retire to the area can often feel isolate and end up rowing in winter months.
A NORTH Devon charity is calling on ‘baby boomer’ couples to undertake a relationship check up to enjoy their retirement together.
The charity Relate said many couples visit North Devon in the summer holidays and decide to move her permanently when they retire.
But this can cause them to feel isolated during the cold winter months, and lead to rows and unhappiness, said manager Rebecca Wellaway.
She said: “We are seeing an increase in couples from their mid -fifties upwards who have decided to move to North Devon for their retirement and have found the move difficult to cope with at this time of life.
