I am feeling like I am missing the boat here. I am 27 yrs old and I have been contributing to a traditional IRA for sometime now (5yrs)at the max. After reading material on a roth I am torn as to which I should be contributing to and whether or not my wife should contribute to a roth (opening up an account soon) rather than traditional. As I understand it you potentially gain more from a roth because you are not taxed on your gains. Right? How does the penalty for early withdrawal differ between the two?
