Early Retired for 4+ yrs and still have questions

My story, Married with kids out of the house and stopped working at 50 years old. No Pension and living off of investment income. No debt and smartest thing I ever did was pay off our house in 8 years and started contributing to a 401k plan when I got my first real job. Wife is excellent at money management. She takes care of checking and bill paying, etc. I manage the investment accounts. Wish I didn't make mistakes but I have and still do today. Still learning about living and enjoying life and plan to share with others by posting and asking questions.

Retired at 50, no debt, living off his investments and with a supportive spouse ? Sounds to me like he has the answers and we should have the questions...lol

Seriously, welcome. And kudos.
