Marriage & Babies

A very important topic brought up by PM during last night's National Day Rally. This is not an easy question to answer as other nations are also facing the same question, just that our problem is one of the most critical one, as our fertility rate is one of the lowest in the world. On top of that, our women work force is also one of the lowest in the world too, it's a double whammy for us.

Well sometimes it's not that we dun want to get married but imagine spending at least 9hrs (8 workings hours plus 1 hr lunch) and more in the office with 1-3 hours for transport to and fro work, another 6-8 hours for sleeping, so you see there isn't much time left for socialising. For me, I get to know my hubby from internet via ICQ through midnight chat during my jobless period. Otherwise, I wondered how am I going to get hitched and get married.

After marriage, the next problem is how to have babies. In order to ensure a comfortable income for the family, both of us work very long hours, often having to bring work home. We hardly have time to have sex, no wonder that Singapore has one of the lowest frequency in making love.

haiz.... what to do.... life still have to go on and we still trying for babies.
