I am 32. Retiring early for my generation may very well mean retiring at age 75. What if medical advances in the next 20 years pushes average life expectancy into the 100's?

Anyway, I will not have any plans to retire early if continue to enjoy my work and work continues to give my family and I the flexibility to do the things that I love. When I am ready to settle down and travel the world I will still not consider myself retired. There will always be active endevours and initiatives rolling behind the scenes.

Talk to me in 10 years and maybe I will not sound so optimistic? Nope...life at any stage should be focused on enhancment, not retirement.

I am 31, DH is 42. DH and I plan on retiring within 5-7 years. I think enhancing your life is a good idea, but I personally don't like living in a cubicle from 8-5. Nor do I like having only 2-3 weeks off a year. I'll take retirement any day.

IMHO, work does not give me any flexibility- it just takes up my time.

It probably depends on how you define retirement.

Actually I kinda like "enhanced retirement". I just have to figure out what that is.
