there are no hard and fast rules. but if you expect your wife to work and still take care of 2 kids, then you jolly well earn enough to hire helpers and put your kids in proper infant/child care.

if you want to be childish, then you can't expect women to want to marry you.

$700 isn't even enough for childcare.

But being in a relationship should not be about dollars and cents, today your earning a good salary 2mrw your poor will she still love u.

For me is more than enough  (I am a guy hor I declare first). If I can earn 5k (in today's dollars) I am very happy liao. Cos wife also earning probably over 2k at the bare minimum.

At 7k as a family don't anyhow spend money confirm can live comfortably in a HDB + Taxi on weekends one lo. In fact if scrimp and save even more even if wife don't want to work want to be housewife I also will bite the bullet and say ok go for it.

Coming home to a HDB debt free is so much relaxing comparing to coming home to a Condo + car and debt ridden feeling stressed.

There are still a large population of guys who don't. Those in engineering profession generally don't.  :'(

Well, go ahead and try if you think 6000 is a high target. Lets see what you get in the end. You can either work hard or face the music. Which is easier? I think those who went through the rough patch knows the kind of path ahead for a family when the income aint enough. Is 6k alot? No, not at all. Is 10k a lot? Again, not at all. So, what is enough? Its about the life you want to lead. You can have 100k but lead a lifestyle of 600 per month. Or you can have 2.5k a month but lead a 5k lifestyle, only to realise you are constantly serving credit card interest loans.

Enough or not enough, is your financial management. You asked the girls what is the number they are looking at, obviously who will tell you 1.5k is good? Maybe 50years ago, she might.
Make the choice right, not making right choices.
