Sorry, PG, I disagree with several angles you gloss over. First, no retiree should ever feel "constrained" to live anywhere. Half the fun of retirement comes from freedom and endless possibilities. Neither adult children, friendships, or a spouse should make our place of retirement decision for us. If we choose to live near friends or family, we ignore the transient nature of modern life. Our kids and our friends both have a tendency to disappear or move on. We have to have lives apart from them. Spouses and partners need to form part of the team for a choice of location, but again, if they feel "constrained" in their selection then they build their own prison.
