We're the exact same age, so I don't have that excuse.
DW and I do have an agreement. We could both FIRE now if we really had to. We'd have to drop our expected expenses by about 15 or 20%, but we could do it. Actually, what would happen is health costs would eat up that extra 15-20%, along with a longer horizon time necessitating a smaller withdrawal rate. We would have to live more conservatively, but we could live.
So, I've told DW if her job is ever killing her, GET OUT. No need for that. She has had some days...
