Let's get married!
Let's just go somewhere and get hitched and live happily ever after!

Marry me?
Some simple and meaningful scripts from all the love movies that you have watched your entire life.
It seems pretty easy, get married and you will be happy forever after.

I beg to differ.
If you are not financially stable, the happiness will not follow suit.

Do not get me wrong.
Money = Happy is not the formula I am suggesting
Less Money = Frequent fight over the lack of money + Unsatisfied feeling + Not enough for family + Less time with family is more like the formula that I am suggesting.

In any religion, it does say that Rezki awaits anyone who seeks it. 
Meaning, you have to work for it and not just waiting for it to fall on your laps.
With the current global economic situation, everybody is feeling the heat.
In Malaysia, here are some of the examples of the wave.

To eat breakfast is also costly
Even to have a decent breakfast, one have to plan the diet carefully.
People might advise you "Cook and bring food from home". 
And the groceries are free nowadays? - I would say!
To travel from work also need cash.
Ditch the car and take the public transport, people will say.
Owh... the public transport is free in Malaysia?
Not to mention the punctuality of the service too.

The latest toll rates in Malaysia
In order to get married, you have to have at least RM10,000 for the occasion - the food, the place, the clothes, the rings etc.
After that, both of you have to start thinking about getting a place of your own, if you do not have one already. 
Just make sure that the monthly combined salary is more than RM6000.

This is just for 'wang hantaran'

RM12,000 salary is reuired
Then the little bundle of joy comes along - better start thinking about having a stay-in nanny or sending the little one to a day-care centre. Not just an ordinary one as you might get your baby back with bruises and all.

So what do you do?
Whine and whine all over the social media and get some sympathy whispers?
Or do something about the situation?

Wow! And to spend a lifetime paying the debt

Hurm. Too costly to get married?
In the end, be extra sensitive when you see a young guy/ girl that is still not married.
It is not their choice.

Anyway, let's do something to earn that extra income.
Just spend extra 2 hours of your daily routine to earn that extra cash for your family.

Just contact me so that I could share with you the secrets of generating extra income today.

Finally someone made this posts!! Been wanting to write something similar but you took the words right out of my mind! For a person who rely on public transport and bring food from home the cost is all the same or when more. Price of groceries is rising and public transportation is so unpredictable making me late for work hence salary deduction

Its almost a miracle we all could survive comfortably and get to have the basic necessities. In this era working two jobs is like something normal. All to do is never surrender I guess

times are bad, cost of living are invcreasing

luckily i got married already, and you're right, the expenses were over the top! a guy's savings can be easily wiped out over marriage.

and you know what? after marriage, your savings virtually belong to the wife already! haha

Getting married is two people's business right? One of the reasons I didn't want to get married is because of this. I didn't think I'm really financially to get married yet.

The costs of living is increasing, that's for sure. Am I dying of hunger? No. It may sound conceited, but I find the increasing costs as an annoyance rather than a disturbance. Keep in mind, I'm surviving on RM650 per month, including all of my living expenses. It's annoying that I have to pay so much more extra for groceries and stuff and I wished I could don't pay it, but we live life within our means. I would have love a better life, where I don't have to live so spartanly, but at this current moment, I'm happy with my life.

But you're right. Getting married is a different ball game altogether.
