There are instances in which two is better than one. This is applicable in the FIRE journey. It is much easier if the couple with the similar FI mindsets embark on the FIRE journey together. The economy of scale play a part in making the achievement of FIRE sooner. I believe that there are examples in which one is unable to find the appropriate partner with FI views. This is applicable for one who want to go such route of opting for the like-to-like partner. I am one such example. To me, it does not matter whether I manage to find the FI lady who is willing to embark on the same journey as me. If such lady appear in my journey, it will be great. If no, I can continue my journey alone.
