One's cost of living is quite low without a spouse and kids. So, yeah, with that and a high salary you could indeed retire early and rich.

Actually being married could be an aid to early retirement if both partners have similar salaries and the same ideas about saving and investing. There are economies in two people living in the same household.

Kids of course are an added expense. But so is buying a boat or an airplane. We make our choices and live with the consequences.
