At what age do you plan to retire?

My goal is 55. After that any work I do is for fun. Not sure it'll happen but that's the plan.

Aiming for 42 (hopefully earlier), still 10 years out but am on track.

Goal would be Freedom 55. If earlier that would be fantastic but not realistic unless there is some sort of large inheritance I don't know about.
With that said, my goals may change and will realistically retire closer to 65.

People that are retired at my age or plan to, any kids or spouse/gf?

Aiming for 55 but realistically I think it's going to be in the 60s.

I'm with you there.

Work still gives me the luxury of doing what I want when I want. I can't see myself doing or wanting to do anything more than I do now.

I guess some people don't love their jobs so I can see it being like a prison.

Realistically at age 60. Earlier would be nice. I hate working.

Early 50s. My wife actually doesn't mind working. I hope to have at least one or two properties to manage, and compliment that by working contract or part-time jobs.

I will be financially independent at 45. However, I will continue to work on a part time/flexible basis.

Probably work 6 months and travel for the second half of the year.

I think for many, the actual job itself is tolerable, however, it's the people/work politics that is draining. Basically, alot of angry or self serving people that make it hard to want to stay long-term in that environment.

On track so far for financial independence at 45. Married and 1 child (planning for the 2nd one). Sole breadwinner. I could only get this far thanks to leveraging (and proper temperament / knowledge on how to invest and trade).
