Mal, not everyone calls it "holy matrimony". Only Christians do as far as I know (I'm catholic by the way).
Also, the whole concept of marriage is really worth nothing if it's purely left to the church. On the other hand it has everything to do with the state - legally speaking that is.
To me the legal aspects have had no value. What rights or privileges have I enjoyed here in Singapore as the result of being legally married? I can’t think of anything. It was just paperwork. I also didn’t have Church wedding, such a thing is meaningless. Holy Matrimony transcends all of that, for me.
The definition of marriage :
"the legally or formally recognized union of two people as partners in a personal relationship (historically and in some jurisdictions specifically a union between a man and a woman)."
Sounds like you hold an "opinion" .....

I just found out my next EP renewal I am likely to get an S Pass because I am >40 years old and my salary <11k. The new rules comes into effect Sep 2023.
I have seen ever since I came to Singapore in 2009, our standard just kept getting downgraded. In 2009, we had heard about people who just came 1 yr before me got their PR in 6 months of their application. I found out forget getting PR, keeping your EP is like having a PR.
Also those day you could get a PEP, if you just had a salary of 3.5K provided you stayed in Singapore for 3 yeas or something and then they quickly changed the rule to min 8k salary and then kept increasing it faster than my salary could ever catch up.
Today I found out, forget about EP, S Pass is like the new E Pass now, for people like me who have crossed 40 but have hit the 15k kind of salary band and are in the financial services industry.
We can extend this to other things also. Given the way rents .....
This is actually a really good point. When I first moved here I was unmarried, and my first job only paid S$2.3k and I rented a room in an HDB for $450/mo, and I could still save a good % of my salary.
I am married, single income wife is home maker and my daughter goes to international school. Yet, I have managed to save like 50% of my salary throughout my 13 years stay here.
I just reorganized my networth tracker this weekend and here are some interesting stats:
I saved 852k SGD over these years since Jan 2010, cumulative from my salary, prior to that my networth was 87K and I came to SG in Jun 2009. Then the return on investment from my most adhoc poorly managed investments over these years is cumulative 342k.
So 87K+852k+342k = 1281K. This is what I have achieved by staying in Singapore on an EP for 13 years :) Worth it or not? .....
