I am 32 and married. I have 250k in my 401k and do max contributions. I have been maxing for awhile, but my husband had not really done much before we got married (after which I requested he also match) so his is probably a little under 100k. We have a 100k emergency fund and 60k in other stocks. We have recently started making a lot more money in the last few years and are starting to target saving at least 40k a year and up to 70k (depending on bonuses) on top of maxing the retirement funds immediately and if we both continue on the promotion roads we should be able to increase. To me, once we get to $5M that would be enough to retire although we vaguely target $10M (my husband has more of a desire to keep our lifestyle high/or inflate it - but he also likes working more than me so we may compromise on me retiring or decelerating sooner and him continuing in the rat race). We should hit $10M by 60 at current savings rate depending on the market, definitely by 65 barring any major issues.

Also, there is a bunch of this content in the personal finance bowl if you want to search this content there.

26 $100k 401k $40k Roth IRA $12k pension $30k cash savings $10k checking Single and started from 0 savings / 0 debt upon graduation Not sure how much I need for retirement but will depend on my future husband’s income and savings. Also likely plan to stop working once I have kids.
