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.
