Together we are more

In the future, the most important people in my life are “my family. All packed into one house! Having grown up with a huge family myself, I want to savor this time for the rest of my life. It’s loud, hectic, chaotic, but at least you’re together with these people.”

We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

27, dark-skinned, creative, working as a managing director in the spirits sector

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

With my wife and my dog that regularly forces me to leave the house!

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

My family. All packed into one house! Having grown up with a huge family myself, I want to savor this time for the rest of my life. It’s loud, hectic, chaotic, but at least you’re together with these people.

What is your sex and love life like in the future?

Regular pelvic exercises with a personal trainer should continue to make me capable of pleasing my wife sexually. With so much time in retirement, this becomes one of the most important activities.

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

The dog, a book, and a daily wild bunch to tame should keep me fit.

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

Hopefully I’ll be set and only have to go into the company now and then because of my public role there.

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?

To not pee the bed.

If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

What if it turns out better than you can imagine?
