Yes I understand but I can't start properly squirreling away money for another couple years. Current savings are going towards bringing my fiance to the states and then saving towards a house down payment. Once I'm past that we can start saving up again but by then I'm worried that it doesn't matter the amount I save since it obviously won't be equatable to my current income and I know compound interest won't pull it up enough.
I'll likely end up needing to work part time when I'm older to support myself. Maybe that will change in the future. We'll see. I'm in a kind of transition period at the moment so there is a possibility circumstances will change.
