In many ways, Amon and Christina are your average American couple—they raise two daughters, enjoy foodie adventures and trips to the beach. There’s just one thing that drastically sets them apart, they retired in Portugal at the ages of 39 and 41. And they did so off of their government jobs, each making less than six figures. Through house hacking, side hustles and DIY home renovations, they earned, saved and invested their way to retirement as part of the Financial Independence Retire Early (FIRE) movement.
