It depends on the “people” Right now my wife and I pay 26% of our take home pay to student Loans - so I would gladly go 20% to retirement once we were settled in a house/etc. But until they are paid off - we just do 6% each + ESPP 3-4% at our companies

Family law associate. I run a docket of about 40-50 cases and work about 50 hours a week. I currently make about 125K (self-employed, no benefits). Between jury trials for CPS termination cases and the highly adversarial nature of family law, I find this job to be incredibly draining, as I have horrid work/life balance and struggle with constant anxiety. I recently got an offer with a personal injury firm. 110K, full benefits, for a non-litigation/docket manager role. Thoughts?
