But in this case I wouldn't say J.J.'s perspective is limited. It's my impression that J.J. shares many demographic similarities with RFG. He can correct me if I'm wrong. I have a little interest in discussing RFG's pension, but I acknowledge that if J.J. has put that much thought into RFG's pension, then certainly RFG put as much thought in it, if not more.
Personally, I don't see the a man approaching retirement age running off with a woman, abandoning his identity and sacrificing his life savings. Unless, there was something hanging over his head. In which case, the woman is incidental to the primary reason for his disappearance.
I am approaching his age and while I don't have nearly the same money, I'm in the retirement system.
Money was an issue with him, even if it was being paid for what he thought he was worth. The accomplishment in office that gave him the greatest pride was making the job full time (and nearly doubling his salary in the process). He had that fight with EG over the furniture, but he was making more that $108 K them, and EG was working as well. BG would have been making more than $100 K as well, so it wasn't Lara's bills.
His financial situation is, bluntly, not what you would expect for a guy planning to retire.
