    Default Retire at 65??

    The days of our lives are seventy years. And if by reason of strength they are eighty years.
    Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow....

    Life is short. We should all retire at 50. We must learn to number our days.....

    If you have money... 20 year old also can start your retirement...

    If at 65/70/75 still can't afford to stop working... talk what of Retirement...

    Good for you. I like the contrast between work and breaks, because the breaks are just so much more welcome. In fact, when I take too long a break, I feel like I'm wasting my life just enjoying myself when there are things to do..

    Anyways in recent years there's always been discussions on whether retiring later extends your lifestyle. Some studies say yes, some studies say no. I personally think it depends on the person. If you do not manage the job stress well, naturally it is going to take its toll on you especially at an old age. Of course, the amount of job stress also depends on your job.

    Just do what you want, try to plan for it. Not everyone is going to be like you. If life was so uniform, it would be very, very, very boring.

    Why do you want to wait until 50 ?

    If you got the money, you can retire at 30

    I am referring to an avg Joe like me. Optimumlly, IMO, would be about there. Financially ok, kids old enough to be independent. And you still hv, ideally, another 20 to 30 yrs to enjoy

    It would be a nice prospect to retire at 50 with a young 18-year-old wife from Vietnam.
