noob here I am still studying
going to grad and join the workforce in august
how much should I earn or have in my savings when I want to get married and start a family
that is about 5-7 years time
it's not easy, but achievable.
most parents will help you with your wedding, but i have friends who 100% used their own savings.
these are the kind of people i respect.
but of course, to each his/her own.
you'll really need to sit down and do your maths properly.
cos fresh into workforce, your takehome(note TAKE HOME, not GROSS) is miserable.
- Take home pay of couple
- Total Expenditure
- Wedding cost (banquet , bridal studio etc)
- Housing (if you are staying with your family or a new place - includes renovation)
I have seen many graduates , after a few years , pay for their flat (and some of them resale) , and wedding with their own savings without any help. It is achievable , and not as hard as it seem. You will need some financial planning and maintain your expectation vs expenditure.

also, if you want to get a car, you'll need to factor in the cost and maintenance of it.
my friend just applied for dawson at queenstown, selling price for 5 room is about 530-630k.
which IMHO, is insane for a HDB.
again, to each his own.
you'll really NEED to sit down with your other half and do EARLY FINANCIAL PLANNING.
if given a choice, one where the guy and the girl are not very rich but has enough and has to support themselves financially but do it together, and another where the girl finds a guy who is already rich and so can afford everything, i wonder how many girls will choose the first option?
did you think guys are always victimised? i am in the midst of breaking up with a friend and cut off all business linkage with him because he has shown himself to be a not faithful man. so u think gals are always wrong? i know his wife and the wife is really a beautiful lady who choose to stick by him though he ain't rich. but with a bit of money,his faithfulness is tested...
i tell my friends any girl that says they want a rich husband or say husband must drive etc etc...pls don't hook up to them...of course at the same time i also think it is not wrong for the girl if her consideration of a guy in turn of financial well being is not overboard. it is not easy to always live in desperate time. imagine after wedding or sthg then the guy goes cashless..
so conversely, how much should a girl have saved by the time she's 30? 35?
