Sorry to jump on your wannabe festNo I truly enjoy the discussion. We don't get much around here.I worded the section as FIRE indicators, not "things one must do to FIRE". And stated that "There are many paths towards FI, and this is just the details on mine"But I figured I might tweak some Apple lovers. ;-)But I still think getting the big picture in life is helpful in the path towards financial independence, not just in management. But many can succeed without it, and know many who have.In fact, we were married by a Justice of the Peace in our condo for $25Yeah, we did something similar. Married at the court house for probably around $25, don't remember. It was a lady in a chair with a typewriter. But several months later we did have a small ceremony, but the total cost was maybe $800, way more than yours. I remember we splurged and spent $100 on supermarket flowers. Rented a chapel for $200. $60 for a friend to play the piano. Had the reception at a friends house. Etc. Her $300 dress was probably the biggest expense.Anyway we also splurged on the "Honeymoon". Went with our family to Las Vegas for 5 days.I think our biggest splurge items are all the traveling we do. But yes, as long as one can afford it, pay cash, etc. have fun with life!--whyohwhyoh
