What's your problem? If he wants to retire at 55, so be it. It is not early at all. My dad retired at 55 and he left peacefully at 66. At least he had 11 years of his life in relaxation. He worked hard since he was 15. Someone I knew wanted to retire at 65 and was looking towards it but he was gone at 62. How about you? Can you guarantee you can live beyond 50? Is your $5m not enough?

Work hard, save hard, invest well, live well.
