DW's field of study is psychology; I hold undergrad degrees in physics and math, MS in physical science, and (by August) an MBA.

Yes, thanks for posting. It's nice to read something from someone happy who isn't emphasizing how many digits are in their bottom line.

Definitions of "being rich" will undoubtedly vary from person to person, but I think most folks would agree it involves at least two elements of "freedom" -- freedom from worrying about security and freedom to pursue interests. Fortunately for us, these freedoms are the direct output of savings (mostly mine, a little hers) and future work (mostly hers, a little mine).
