Indeed, it will greatly enhance the success rate. At this point of time by having a kid, i think i will probably the one taking care of him/her instead my wife.

Family planning is important and communicate to both parties and other factors need to take into consideration as well.

I think you should telling this to yourself. SMS and, myself we are old timers here and have kids. I have 4 big grown up kids. If only yourself is taking care of your kid then I seriously think that you have a major problems on your hands. It takes two to be a couple and alot of compromise on both parties.
Looking at this scenario, if you "kowtow" to many of her demands that methinks you will become pussy pillows by this going rate.
I maybe wrong here but marriage is about happiness of two individuals till death do you apart not otherwise
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.Yahoo !!!

Totally agree with you, a rewarding marriage require 2 parties to manage and maintain.

See how things goes in the future but I still have to thank you for sharing your experience with me, really appreciated it.

Probably not because local men are apparently easy to dupe (at least according to Singapore women who claim the PRC women are stealing their husbands, etc), so she should have found another sucker, given a year or two. :-k :oops!:

Dear all,

Recently, I was asked to leave after my 4 months probation due to issue with my boss. Therefore, I am not able to get the 6 months pay slips from the company. The very first thing I thought of next is not about my job but my wife PR application.

I call up ICA and ask them about the 6 months pay slips, is it ok to have break in between due to job change or others. The person over the phone told me is ok.

But, somehow, I feel quite unease especially without the job history at this point of time. And whether will ICA consider a person long term job history as a main factor. I took up this job is due to higher position, higher pay and government link and hopefully, by doing so, this time round, my wife PR application have a higher chance to be approve.

Should I wait till I get a perm job and probably wait to get the 6 months pay slips from the next company to apply my wife PR or maybe next year June, 3 years in my marriage and longer term working with the next company to apply it or just apply it with the break in between combing the previous and recent companies pay slips?

Your feedbacks are greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

Lot's of PRC women latch onto a local dude for a couple of years, get married and shortly after getting PR, poof! They are gone, divorced the dude after cleaning out his bank account and either on to another or set themselves up here without looking back. Immigration is wise to this so tends to make those people who have married PRC and/or Vietnamese women wait at least two years before allowing the foreign spouse to gain PR. What will tend to speed it up is having a male child shortly after getting married (1+ years). The child will be a Singapore Citizen and required to do National Service.

So, if you don't have any children, you need to remember or learn how to use it, and get busy. :wink:


Hi acidrain sorry to post question on your thread, since I don't want to open new thread to a similar question..

I have a situation where I need to get my wife to be a PR. We need PR is to buy HDB, we couldn't afford private property and rent a room for long terms.
We are going to get marry end of this year, but I'm thinking to get the ROM first asap to have longer "married period"

My status:
- SPR for 6 months
- Working and living in Singapore for the past 6 years as employee
- 31 yrs old Indonesian Chinese

My girlfriend status:
- Staying in Singapore for the past 4 years
- Working for 3 years and now she is stop working and studying in private school to get another degree, she is now holding student pass
- 25 yrs old Indonesian Chinese

Her study will finish in 1 year time from now. I'm looking for the highest chance options to get her a PR and to be eligible to purchase HDB.

My current plan:
- ROM with her in Singapore
- Wait for 6 months - 1 year then apply PR for her under the SPR spouse scheme

Thx in advance!
