Late to the game but want to start saving more. Currently putting 15% into my 401k and have a couple of questions. 1. Does it matter how I split up my 401k contribution (traditional vs Roth)? 2.

And if I do a backdoor Roth, do I have to convert it every time I contribute? And lump sum or equal amounts each paycheck? Thanks!
If I quit, and want to pull money out of my company 401k, what penalties will I face? Can I roll it into Real Estate without penalty?
Husband resentment. How to deal constructively? It’s been unfortunately simmering for years and boiling now. Before we had kids we agreed I’d be the “primary” parent.
