My wife and I have our worst arguments on the allocation of our funds. I am 100% in stocks. My wife thinks we should have some bonds for income. Since most of our retirement money is in my IRAs ( from 15 years in the petroleum industry) I control the funds. I am in FF, 10 to 12 large cap stocks like WMB, HD etc, SPY for diversity and a small amount in PEG5. I plan on retiring in 2 to 3 years and each year converting part of the FF into SPY and monthly selling SPY for a salary.
Like I said my wife worries, but so far has not revolted.
I am curious to hear what others are planning on or are doing.
We do plan on lots of travel when we retire - leave New Orleans in the summer when it is HOT!
