    You'll live a further 50 years.

    Re: 50 years

    I can't imagine anyone saying "a further 50 years."

    It depends on whether you're saying you'll become older than 50, or double 50 (100 years!)

    You'll live another 50 years.
    You'll live 50 more years.
    You could live for 50 more years (after your heart surgery at age 30).

    May you live for 100 years!
    (No matter what age you are, I hope you hit 100)

    you'll live another 50 years. this is a good addition to the choices.
