Of course I think about setbacks (eg no one will hire me, hence the questions) but like the poster said, donít need to eat today since tomorrow will be hungry? Donít set financial goals because tomorrow can lose job? Donít save for or wedding or house or baby because any time can break up?

P.s. donít think a breakup will disrupt my progression plans

my point is that life is not that smooth sailing n for every successful case there are 9íwho left.

why do you think thereís a hallowing now
This must be one of the most sensible things posted about life.

I believe most of the posters here are fresh graduates or 1-2 PQE who hasnít seen much about life and human relationships complications.

It is more important to take things as it comes and go with the flow.

I agree that not many things in life will go as planned when you become older unlike school edu system from primary to Uni.

This is why law is a graduate degree in some countries because you need to have a sense of reality about life before rendering advice.

You sure breakup wonít disrupt your life?
Are you already attached? Different people handle it differently.
And anyway, I agree you should/can set goals.
But adulthood is very different.
Things always donít go to plan.
I only have one advice for you.
Assume youíre not rich, then save every cent you earn.
Ultimately when everything donít go as planned,
The money you have will form a safety net

Not to say if youíre from a delisted Uni, you canít go big four or magic circle or American law firms.

Iíve seen people from delisted uni in those firms.

Granted some might have connections, but overall?

Donít think so. So just prove. Go for it. Try to write to the partners directly in these firms.
Tell them you can work 20-22 hours a day and youíre not attached.
Chances are youíll be hired.

These firms like people to put in Long hours

Wow, I genuinely have never heard any stories like that. Iím in a stable relationship, so thatís scary to know. Hope my relationship will not implode, and even if it does that my life will not implode after.

Did not understand why a break up would affect progression because my friends who broke up seem to have (on the surface) the usual amount of difficulty moving on (I.e. not debilitating), the only stories Iíve heard of people going into debt is from paying for a BTO and then breaking up. Of course I also believe in my inner strength to pick up the pieces. Hope I wonít be humbled by life! Do not have friends whoíve divorced, can only imagine itís more emotionally and financially draining. I am indeed be a bright eyed fresh grad!!!

Will take the advice of saving up, and injecting a heavy dose of reality to my future planning. Thanks all!

Yeah itís always when you least expect that people break up.
Itís debilitating if you are in a committed serious relationship.
The hardest stage for your relationship would be transitioning from a relationship when you are a student and a relationship when youíre working adults.

The world out there is damn ugly. People change heart. They find someone else at the workplace etc.

So yeah donít plan so much. Itís pointless. U can plan a fiancťe and all. But you wonít know when it breaks up.
And u reset to zero

And donít give an expensive diamond ring to your gf if you canít even make ends meet.

Cos presumption of advancement means that gift is a gift absolutely to your wife and wonít be part of the matrimonial pool

Frankly people change heart. I used to think my gf wonít.
Yeah things change when started working

Itís the workplace. People find others
