In Singapore, if you just depend on husband's income, then be happy staying in a HDB flat and taking the bus. Not many husbands earn $250k pa salaries. If you want a high standard of living - live in a condo, drive a conti car, holidays to faraway places twice a year, dining in high class restaurants, etc - then both husband and wife need to earn income. If wife earn more, never mind, the husband must not be egoistic, just share your life together happily.

I am a Singaporean, born and raised here.

Not everyone is eligible to buy it at $10K, in the first place, me and wife not eligible for BTO because she don't have PR.
