If I wasn't already married to the most spectacular woman in the world... this thread would have convinced me to never get married.

I often think the same could be said if you replace the word 'counseling' with 'Financial Advisor'. But then again if you are going to throw the blanket in the air it might as well cover everyone when it lands.

This is the right executive management perspective!
Doing things today that others won't, to do things tomorrow that others can't. Of course I'm referring to workouts, not robbing banks.

Wow this thread is on fire (no pun intended). When I started reading this I think there were 7 pages, and here I am replying on page 9. Brewer's issue has seemingly resolved. But one takeaway from this, for those about to retire, is to make sure spouse is on board with the ER plan.
My DW is still happily w*rking as a teacher. We had many discussions before my ER, and she was consistently supportive of it. That did not change when I pulled the plug, and we have probably argued less since my ER, One thing I did, in the first month or so of my ER: I made it a point to not being home at 3:30 PM, when she came home from school. I just didn't want to risk her seeing me "doing nothing" as she walked in the door. It was an unecessary precaution, as it turned out, but better safe than sorry.

Aw...Brewer was just blowing off some steam. I understand about that. But it does keep the retirees occupied...
