Tips:

Instead of focusing on budgeting, focus on goals you can agree on and set up a financial plan i.e., know how much each of you is putting into your respective retirement accounts, whether that amounts to the maximum allowable contributions, what your respective vesting schedules are, and how much money each of you will get from Social Security and what any pension benefits will be.

Paying yourself first is the best way to guarantee long-term wealth – and even if you’re nearing retirement, it is never too late to start. Set aside percentage of every dollar you earn and invest it for your future – ideally 10%, if not 15% of your income
