Looking for some advice. I am 39 and my wife is 34. I make about $130k a year and my wife about $30k. We have no children and don't plan on having any. We have mortgage in which we owe about $350k @4%. We are only 5 years into it. I currently have a 401k with about $160k in it and a Roth IRA with about 10K and about 10K liquid savings? MY wife just started this job(Cablevision) about a year ago and she contributes very little to the 401k( they match) but she is going to increase it. I am sure we are a bit behind in the savings/investments area if we are looking to retire at 5
