Marry With Benefits

There's an old proverb that states, "Money can buy anything of physical value." Well, this proverb isn't exactly true with regards to buying a house in Singapore. The small city-state prohibits any single person under 35 from buying a house or flat, regardless of income. This is confirmed by a contributor who lives in Singapore. The only way an individual can bypass this rule is to get married. Marriage is literally the ticket to personal freedom, free from living with your parents and siblings or dealing with nosy landlords. By the way, rent in Singapore is astronomically high so owning your own flat is definitely good for your pocket. 

What about buying a car in Singapore? Well, a new Toyota Corolla (value car) costs more than $100,000 compared to around $20,000 in the States. And legally, you can't use a car past 10 years. A 10-year-old car is put to scrap. 

Consequently, most Singaporeans live with parents or siblings and use public transportation.
