Nice thread! Awesome that you have a spouse who is so willing to continue working for another 10 years. Truth told though, you have enough to make it work if she were to stop working today...you might have to downsize, but you could easily make it.

I'm 46 like you, and I've still got ~13 years and 5 months before I will be able to pull the trigger...unless something unexpected happens. Perhaps if my wife wants to continue working beyond age 60, I will convince her to allow me to retire before age 60. She might want to too as she's only recently gone back to working after being a Stay At Home Mom for years.

stupid question: mid six figures

Stupid question: "mid six figures" is a term I read here and hear in real life regularly. Does that mean $150K/year +/- or $500K/year +/-? I suspect much of the time it means the former, but perhaps on here more often the latter?

Hmm. I assume "mid six figures" to mean ~$500,000 a year, and of course that seems to me like a HUGE salary. I'd go so far as to say if a person making $150,000 a year calls that "mid six figures" then they aren't using that term correctly.
