Abstract [en]

The main objective of our essay is to analyze the influence of the spouse on

the partner’s retirement decision. Drawing on a large sample of older citizens

and a combination of a postal survey and register data, we use standard

econometric techniques to identify the impact of the spouse’s characteristics on

the partner’s decision to retire. The results of our estimations show that

cohabiting/married males’ decision to retire was negatively affected by their

partners’ health condition. On the other hand, cohabiting/married women were

more likely to retire if their partner had already retired.
