interesting topic. why older men are taking younger wives? looks like a case of 老牛吃嫩草 :duck:

some divorced their wives to remarry. these wives are foreigners...dependent on their much older spouses for financial support. do these men think of their wives and children if anything happens to them?

This is Human Nature to satisfy their needs, lonely ,pride ,ego....

In the first place why this 嫩草 wants to marry 老牛??
For the sake of love, Obviously No... For the Sake of $$$$.
Everything is 2 way traffic.

Welcome to the Materialistic World .... :evil:

After being Human for the last 40 years , I concluded that to protect oneself , one must be independent ,even you are happily married...sorry to said that.
Human Relationship are extreme complex, till today I am still learning. :xedfingers:

This World is Sick , so trust no one but yourself and stay happy. :smile:

老牛 go for 嫩草...young lor.
嫩草 go for 老牛...for the sake of getting out of their country and equating Singapore men as $$$.
so it's a win-win thing for the 'old cow' and 'young grass'.

Is there a concern?
How do you define older and younger?

Can't find the news report so it's not a concern. :cool:

Older means >40. Young means <30. In between is the age of growing old and facing increasing stress while climbing the social ladder and start comparing wealth, social status, assets and kids' schools. :duck:

Have not read the report yet. Just wondering does ESM Goh's statement include those lowly-educated, low-income blue collar workers who all along hope to marry a local Singaporean lady but they were not successful. Maybe some of these uncles are just looking for a companion to keep them company in their twilight years or yearn to have their own flesh and blood they can be proud of.

吴作栋:老夫少妻跨国婚姻增
预见未来隐忧

24/04/2015 on 新明日报
By 张育铭 , 陈莹纮

越来越多年长狮城男为外国嫩妻申请长期探访证或永久居民权。(档案照)
荣誉资政吴作栋表示,能预见未来的社会问题将如雪崩而来,而在接见选民时也发现,越来越多年长狮城男为外国嫩妻申请长期探访证或永久居民权,希望当局跟进这些婚姻的稳定性及孩子们的生活情况。

吴作栋今早在社会服务研究中心(Social Service Research Centre)的开幕礼上致辞时说,我国社会已经相较50年前更富裕,教育程度更高,但面对的社会问题也与50年前不同。他预见,未来的社会问题将如雪崩而来,我们需要抢先一步想到解决方案,再发展新的社会服务基础设施。

他指出,1947年,吴庆瑞所做的社会调查发现,当时主要的社会问题是过度拥挤和识字率低。如今,我国已经经历了社会“气候变化”,而社会变化与环境气候变化一样不易察觉,等到我们发现时,为时已晚。

他指出,我国三个主要推动社会变化的因素是人口、科技和社会期望。
