My missus strongly objects to a hubby a couple of years older than her son, and 15 years younger than his own eldest! As for retirement, Merlyn, I retired in 2003 when I came to TC, no more 12-18 hour days, work 5 days a week, not 7, every weekend off, sleep in my own bed every night, I get days off they call "holidays"..and I get paid for them, when I get sick, I don't get fired, I get paid! Beats the hell outa working, I thoroughly endorse it!
I mark my last Exam, ceasing "work" in July 2018, after that, who knows? Insh'Allah.
Discourage incest, ban country "music".
