Her husband has turned around and told her she has to keep working because he is scared the pair will run out of money.

‘We have nearly $7 million in assets (including a paid-off house worth about $1.5 million), our dividends are about $500,000 a year gross, and I want out,’ she said

‘I just don’t know how to sit down and work out when ‘enough is enough’? How do I get my husband to see my point of view?’

Christina wrote her complaint in a Q+A with Barefoot Investor Scott Pape.
