Marital/work status of FIREees and wannabees

I recall reading in "The Millionaire Next Door" about the marital/work status of the millionairs the author surveyed. Thought it would be interesting to see how our group of those who have FIRE'd and those who plan to FIRE turn out on the same question.

I realize that, in this age of multiple marriages and changing spousal work situations over time, these options are not mutually exclusive. But for the sake of simplicity pick the option that best fits your situation.
