I wonder if the FIRE bug bites when events cause it to be pushed farther into the future... :-)

Actually this event pulls things in a bit as my wife wants to move back to France to be with friends and family to raise our kids. We have been trying for a 2nd child for awhile now and I've told my wife to hold off until we have the 2nd. My wife prefers health care here particularly for child birth or anything beyond a blood test, so it's been easy to hold her off.

Anyway, now I've given her a date of 2010 to move plus a 4 month visit in 2008. Not sure exactly where we will be financially at that point (possibly $9-$10E5), but she is willing to work in France at some point. There wouldn't be much for me in the countryside of Normandy except raising my kids, visiting friends, gardening, cooking, fixing up my MIL's house etc. But expenses will initially be low since no mortgage, so we will have some money to travel in France a bit.

It would be tough to leave my high paying job though. Sort of.

Our 10 year anniversary is this week. +4 years of sin ;-)
