Good observation but I don't think it is a side effect, more one of the reasons for ER.

I would think starting over with half or less of your nest egg at age 40-50 could put a real kibosh on FIRE plans.

How about less than 1/2 (community property does not guarantee 50% each). It happened to me at 49. That's why I had to work past normal retirement age.
