    Default Past, present, future.

    During 70's, 2 is enough.

    Now, not enough, import. But import correctly? Think of a woman, almost 40, convert to citizen. If she is a les, she wouldnt marry n even she is not, she might not n even she might able to, chance for her to give birth is low n she can manage a lot n the kid is only 20 when she is 60!

    Future. Due to present situation, more old ppl are generated and the problem never going to be solve unless

    Gives out citizenship to new family with kids first. Single over 30, lesser chance. Singapore just like a chinese rojak last time. Now mix with indian rojak, sure LS after eating la. Worse still, add sugar, salt etc into it, can go hospital liao.

    The 2 is enough is not totally well planned at all. No buffer n now suffers.

    Now encourage we to have more but the cost of living, top 10 in the world!

    If they never looks into having old single as new citizen now, the problem will surface soon.

    I encounter such incident n discussed, feels that its too easy to become citizen n they could easily earn $ from renting out the flat if they still single. They hardly will give birth n next time, need more ppl to look after them n us.

    I looks into the future, not think too much.

    very true as well. also, people think raising a kid is pretty expensive. actually it isn't. the only reason why people think it's expensive is because after buying their Condominium, BMW, and calculating in budget for expensive tuition and "Charity and Donations" to top schools to ensure a "Future" for their children... no doubt... that's where all the expenses go

    Not totally true. The main cause. New disease surfaces, one kid kenna, the rest also. HFMD enough, the cost of doc n medicine fees can be a burden on low income family. Then the increase in sch fees, bus fare etc., but the parent salary didnt go up that much.

    Best is to plan for future. Enough $ then plan to have kid else forget it. Dont let the kids suffers.

    i think mainly the low income bracket will suffer. but if you look at the situation, most of the low income earners have pretty large families compared to those with a higher income. 2 or 3 kids at the least. they don't worry. it's the educated ones who worry about how to feed their kids and worry about the future.

    but you're right. low income bracket will bear the burden of raising a larger family.

    from what i see, it's mainly chasing the high-life that makes the well-educated child-less. they can pretty much think of all those excuses not to have kids a well

    Childless. many couples are now opting for IVF because earlier they postponed birth
    until it is too late to produce. It is not cheap and no quarantee that it will work
    It depends on luck.
