Congratulations.

It looks like Family Ties still works pretty well, but I sure your degrees AND also having employment working as a chemical engineer is something they wouldn't mind keeping here as well. That and she having graduated from NUS and having been here 5 years.

So there is still hope. Again, Congrats.

Edited to add my thoughts on what has happened here.....

From a government perspective (in my own mind), ICA still hold the reins here as both the OP and her spouse are currently employed here. Therefore, there is no real harm in granting her PR under the Family Ties scheme as they still do not have to grant citizenship (as we have seen recently). As she is a chemical engineer, there's little chance of her not being able to find a job and a pretty good chance of OP rapidly moving up the EP ranks even if she didn't have PR and as they are legally married, she could still stay here on an LTVP/Dependent of her spouse should she lose her S pass.

Makes no difference as my assumptions could be taken for either spouse. :)

That should be the default assumption. Its extremely rare to see an Indian wife earning more than the husband. :)

Congratulations!

I just hope we don't get people posting here asking you to cut & paste the text from your application form so that they can use it. :twisted:
Be careful what you wish for
