Mike and Sherry Stahl, of Boise, each came home one day about a year ago with life-changing news from their employers: Both had been offered golden handshakes that would provide them with financial incentives to retire. “It’s not as coincidental as it sounds,” Sherry told me. “We both worked for the same high-tech company. Just in different divisions.”

Mike and Sherry had similar reactions, perhaps as a result of years of discussions they’d had together.

“I counted backwards. I asked myself, ‘Do I see myself doing this job at 80? No? Then what about at 75 or 72?’”
