The paper presents a concise description of the relational system of the elderly after retirement. The main objectives of the paper are: to identify these relationships and how this relational system contributes to the acceptance of retirement; to highlight the specifics of the relationships of the elderly; to inventory the activities of the elderly that influence their relationships. The method used in this study is the interview-based survey and the results are obtained after interviewing twenty people. They are between 65 and 80 years old and some of them live in rural areas and others live in urban areas. The interviewees emphasized the importance of relating, after retirement, with family, friends, and the community. These relationships are based mainly on help: the elderly take care of their grandchildren, they work in the household; also, family, friends, neighbours, the community help them when they are in need (whether they are sick, unable to move or alone). Among the activities facilitating the development and consolidation of the relational system, the following stand out: agricultural work, household activities, caring for grandchildren, involvement in community life. The consolidation and development of the relational system is facilitated and enabled by activities such as: agricultural work, household activities, caring for grandchildren and involvement in the community life.
