It's interesting... we had a "typical forum member" thread a while ago and reading the stats in this thread a few things stick out that I don't recall being reflected:

- A lot of singles or long term marriages. As someone noted, divorce can make FIRE harder (though certainly not impossible).
- More "no kiddos" than I expected (I started a thread a while back about being child-free, though DW and I are still, uh, thinking about it/working on it?)
