Well, genuinely married couples normally want to live with each other, the sooner the better. I submitted the paperwork to try to get my wife into Singapore even before the ink was dry on our wedding certificate.
The government let her in, rightly so.
But if the government hadn't let her in, then that would have been disappointing, sure. For a couple days perhaps. Then we'd be living together somewhere else right now. I like Singapore, but if I must choose then it's an easy choice for me: I love being with her infinitely more than being in Singapore without her. If you feel the same way about your fiancé, that's your answer.
The most important issue -- the only
issue, probably -- is whether this guy is the right guy, the one you want to be with forever, wherever
. If you have any doubt about marrying him, then don't marry (at least not now). In other words, if you're finding it difficult to choose between Singapore and this guy, then maybe this isn't the right guy. (Hypothetically you could marry a Singaporean or PR if this isn't the right guy.)
you are ready to marry, you've described the process Singapore requires you to follow to bring your foreign spouse into Singapore. In that event, you'll follow the process, and you'll get a decision one way or the other. Somebody else makes that decision, unfortunately, so there's no use fretting over it. Focus on the only decision you can make: marriage, or no marriage.
Please let us know how it goes, OK?
