I think I would be negotiating now (if possible) on where the kids will go to school. Big difference between State U and Harvard. You have the advantage that Ex apparently will pay half so will ALSO have incentive to keep costs down. I would assume you could also negotiate what % kids will cover with their savings/summer j*bs/school year jobs AND their "college experience" limits. Hope it all works out as YMMV.

So, liquid asset at 46 yrs old is about $1.6 million with an $800K home.
That will be tricky ..

If you are 56, I'd say go for it. But maybe if you do retire and you find yourself short, you can downsize your home to $400K, and add the $400k so you'll have $2 million in liquid assets.
