Which brings us to the original suggestion: wait for her to turn 23.

You're welcome. :P

Wait, we still may consider polygamy...

If the OP doesn't mind, her husband might be all for it. However, I'm not sure how MUIS or ICA will view it. Course, if the husband has to convert and be circumcised, he might think twice about it. :twisted:

It seems that circumcision is such a pointed (hee, hee) subject to non-Muslims, non-Jews and non-Filipinos (and some other culture which circumcision is normal).

Back home, if you're an uncircumcised male or you're circumcised long after puberty, you'll get taunted by the other kids.

:P

A really good maid in Singapore may be worth a circumcision especially that I am not the husband. I believe our local expert ecureilx should be able to shed some light even here :P

Last time I heard, a Mother in Law is still a family member, albeit on the side of the family most everybody wishes they didn't have to claim. :roll:
Family members make no difference, not allowed to work on LTVSP :P :lol: :wink: same difference! So being judgemental is hardly the way for moderation if MOM are surspicious of sponsoring a study permit, they will refuse the permit :roll:

What about the people we see here who want to bring in their mother-in-laws to 'take care of the new baby'. Surely that's work, albeit unpaid?

It is also "family". Far as I can tell, a maid isn't really considered "family". I might be wrong though, if MUIS allows the Sir to marry her as well though. :wink:
