  • If we keep our current house maybe 65.
    If we down size when the kids get out of college maybe sooner.
    If the housing market goes back up much sooner.

  • never lol at least my kids should be able to retire though. my ex sis in law just started a retirement fund for all 3 of my kids. (she has no kids of her own and she was raised by a foster family so no real family, me and my kids is all she has)

  • I am 52 now. I am guessing I'll have to be at least 72, if I can stay healthy enough to keep working that long!

  • My husband: probably never. We'll never have enough in retirement to actually retire (he's been with his company for almost 10 years and has a whole 30k saved up...that's 10k less then he makes in a year, lol).

  • We are working towards 65. I am 51 and my husband 53. Who knows though. I have the summers off as a teacher which helps me recharge and feel like working more. My husband has worked for the same company for 33 years. He is ready and then he says he wants to work until 65. I guess I have 14 or more years. Now I'm feeling depressed. I need some wine.
