Thanks everyone! No worries on the health insurance as I have us covered and my husband is an endurance athlete, so I am fairly confident he won’t become a couch potato. He is also very intellectually curious, so I can see him finding new things to explore.

Honestly, I see this as somewhat of a masculine, “provider” type issue for him. He wants to do something meaningful and meaningfully contribute to the family.
I could care less. I want him - and us - to enjoy life. But, if he isn’t working, I think it could mess with his sense of self-worth. I get it. I honestly do. So that’s why I need to stand back and give him the space to choose what he wants, knowing that I will support whatever he decides to do.

I have more than enough money to retire, especially the way I spend...

That being said, Ill never stop working(unless I physically cant)...The thought of doddering around all day, walking around a shopping mall for no reason, getting in the way of people that do have to work, or laying around the house,etc.. ….eh...not for me...

I love being productive and the greatest part about my scenario is that because I am self employed and don't need the money and am too old to deal with any aggravation. I cherry pick what I do on a daily basis..If I want to do nothing but eff around, that's fine...If someone gives me any shyt I tell them to get lost....Its been pretty good actually,...

Perhaps he could consider that type of arrangement??
