1. Talk to my wife and make a plan.
a. We would disappear for about 3-12 months.
b. Pay off our mortgage. (-$100.000)
c. Give each of our siblings, and my in-laws $100,000 per year for 2 years.
d. Give our grown children $100,000 per year for 2 years. (-$400,000)
e. Spend $100,000 per year for living expenses for 2 years. (-$200,000)
e. Save the balance for 2 years, then make a new plan. ($97.7 million balance)
f. Make no new friends for 2 years.
My wife's plan:
I am fairly certain she would go along with my plan except for possibly part a.
The important thing is to plan together.
