You guys aren't aiming higher than that? Cmon I'm sure if you asked your parents and in-laws would be willing to front your downpayment for The Sail @ marina bay right?

In all seriousness a resale flat is the way to go. After that its straight to pvt property already...dont buy into the whole 'young couple must get BTO' schpiel. it doesn't work for everybody's situation.

Not everyone has rich parents who can pay the 20% for you

Donít all law grads who get into wongp and baker have rich parents who can pay for their guaranteed 1:1 from Kings and help them get good jobs too?

Best part of it is they can't even get any money out of the divorce (pretty sure my seniors ended up worse off financially).

Well you certainly canít go wrong with marrying a 1:1 from Kings. Parents got money and guy will have bright future.

Agree. It is hard to accept the difference in earning power. Most will probably be left on the shelf just like the female lawyer for my housing loan.

On a side note, I do have friends who have good marriages despite income differences.

Not everything can measured by money and it takes both to work on the marriage.

Working hours for lawyers are bad. Life is more than just money, status and work.
