    No Name

    I think the Singapore marital law entitles the woman to ask for custody, care and control of the children in the case of a divorce. It is irrelevant if she has no income. The court can order a man to pay maintenance of his wife upon divorce, separation or annulment of marriage. The court can also order division of matrimonial assets even if the woman did not contribute to it. In summary, if you do decide to file for divorce, then you won't need to provide for your children alone as it will still be a shared responsibility.

    One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees

    CIMB CashLite / CIMB Bank Berhad Singapore Branch

    The CIMB CashLite personal loan is based on your available credit card credit limit therefore you have to be a CIMB cardholder to apply for it. One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees but CIMB doesn’t publish their interest rates online. The actual interest rate is personalised based on your risk profile and credit history so you might very well end up with a higher interest rate than advertised.
