    I retired at 50, 11 years ago. So did my wife. If I had kept working I would have a few million more, but I could never buy the time back. My mother passed away when she was 55, the owner of the company I worked for and also a good friend died at 57. So I wanted to retire when I was still healthy enough to do what I wanted. And we had plenty of money to maintain our standard of living.

    things have worked out well so far.

    DMC, yes the health thing is real and you never know your expiration date.I lost 3 friends between 59-67. My MIL's mom died at 89 so she thought she would live long too. But she died at 67.
