I do agree that it is difficult to request your gf to reduce the allowance for her parents. I am sure there are ways to work around it. My then bf was in debt when we were planning for wedding. We had other issues; like his parents were divorced and he's renting a room and also giving his parents money monthly. Our combined income were $3500 after CPF. What we did was: (1) We had church buffet wedding; which was much cheaper and able to allow us to invite more people. (it depends on your "beliefs" of course) (1.1) Or even better, just ROM will do. My parents said we should have done that but we didn't (2) We had a joint account and a joint MSA to set aside every month for the wedding (it's important to set a workable time frame for the wedding and a target amount to work towards to) (3) I got my parents' permission to allow him to stay in my house aka living room to save on the rental (4) Limit the spending (4.1) what kinda food we eat on a daily basis (we cook to work everyday) (4.2) cycle to work or walk one to two bus stops more to save on transport (4.3) explain to friends that we may not be always going out with them for dinners or activities for the time being to save for wedding - i am sure those friends who are really close with you will understand, at least thats what i did for a year (5) I also took up part time job almost everyday to supplement my income For BTO, can always take advantage of the grants by staying near your parents. Or buy smaller unit at non mature area

Depends on what one wants? For me, if money is sufficient, perhaps i would work part time to past time, keep myself relevant to the society and have my brain working. In that way, i could have more time to do things i really wanna do. :)
