  • I'm on the road to being retired around 35. My husband will be around 40. But I doubt I will stay there. Once this business is able to completely support us enough that we can retire, I will be ready to start a new one! lol! Or at the very least, finish my book! lol

  • I'm quite certain that I'll be able to retire before I'm 50. I am a self employed PFP and by the time I retire I will have been in my job for 25 years.

  • I guess wheater I want to or not I retired 3 years ago when I injured my back and can no longer do the work I use to do. My hubby on the other hand will not retired until he is 65 if all goes right.

  • I'm a SAHM, but my husband can retire in 2 years, when he's 41. But, his take home monthly pay would only be about $4,000, but if he stays in for 7 more years his take home pay will be closer to $7,500 a month... so we'll probably go that route. Plus, by then we'll have about $300,000 saved.

    He also works part-time as an on-line instructor and will make about $1,500 a month there.

  • Technically my husband will be able to retire when he's 50, whether he will or not depends on how much money we have saved when it's time.
