Dear Mr Tan
Your survey on young people in Singapore is interesting.

Have you considered the needs of young people (as in below 35) who are divorced because of a straying husband? Is there anything we can do about it?

What are your views on the high rate of infidelity in Singapore? If you know of someone who has neglected his family and is guilty of infidelity - what would you do? How do you promote stronger families, loving families within your staff in NTUC Income, your policyholders, and the Singapore society at large.

I am sure you agree with me that dysfunctional families where a parent has gone missing because of infidelity causes negative effect on the family, and ultimately on the society at large.

Can we do something about this?

Dear Familylove,

I am sorry that I will not be able to find an answer for the question that you have posed.

I am not knowledgeable in how to solve the infidelity problem in Singapore.

I hope that you can find the answer, one day. Maybe, you should ask your friend or religious leader?

Hi familylove,

I agree with Mr. Tan.

The subject of dysfunctional families and straying spouses, etc is an age-old social problem.
No one has THE solution to a blissful relationship/marriage/family.

It is usually up to the individuals to make the relationship work, and mitigate the negative, rippling effect on society.
