My argument here is that I will not have a mortgage, kid expenses, or be saving 20% of my gross income. It's not what you make, it's what you spend. My spend is something like maybe $50-$60K without watching out on what we spend.It is kind of hard to imagine retiring on less than your current income. You get pretty darn comfortable making whatever it is you do and to backtrack seems impossible. I remind myself I lived on much less in the early days of my career and still more or less had the same lifestyle. If I retired at 65 making $1 million dollars, it would be hard to just be like whelp, now it's time to live on $200k without it hurting quite a lot.
