Well yes to me this is more of early retirement.Would you want to retire, and hire a maid?
That is an option.
And hiring a maid isn't really an option.
I'm home. I'll do more of the household chores but I don't think either of us likes the idea of a stranger coming in the house.
We just aren't the type to have that spotless house. I'm not the type to fuss over pillows or the spotless floor.
I would take over many of 'his' chores and try to make his life easier but it would be retirement for me plus the trading. The trading can easily take 4-6 hours a day to do the research and be available to catch the waves. I also have a few hobbies like raising seahorses that are labor intensive. So it isn't like I'd have 8 hours a day to 'clean' the house.
