The family has suffered at the expense of career in Singapore society.' Is this a fair comment?

YES

Family values have suffered at the expense of career in the Singapore society (Ng Hui Yan)

Family suffered emotionally at the expense of career in the Singapore society. (chloe)

Singapore upholds the tenets of meritocracy. (Christine)

NO

Family has not suffered as material needs are met. (Jeslyn)

The cohesion of a family depends on every individual member's part to maintain familial ties. (Christine)

Interesting to note that in our Labour force, there are almost 3 times as many married employees as there are single ones. Though this doesn't necessarily mean that families are not suffering.

Introduction

In today’s society, the conventional practices of wives being homemakers and husbands being the sole breadwinners of the family has been challenged. With the well-rounded and holistic education Singapore has to offer, everyone has their fair share of education to which help shape more people to be intellectually capable in entering the workforce. In turn, this affects the roles and practices of how parents play a part in the family as compared to in the past Whether or not familes have suffered at the expense of career has to be evaluated in terms of the different types of suffering like emotional and material suffering that can occur in the family. If these sufferings do exist, it is, therefore, a fair comment to say that family has suffered at the expense of career, although it might have brought in material benefits.

Conclusion

It is too absolute a statement to suggest that families have suffered at the expense of career in Singapore. In modern times, working options are more flexible and do not constrain to the average 9-5 job, leaving working family members more time to spend with their loved ones. Moreover, having a career has its perks as it grants families complimentary entitlements. Careers in modern times do not purely refer to generating an income, but connote security within a family which is imperative to keeping a family together.

All in all, a very well thought out piece of work with adequate focus on Singapore. Only major thing to work on would be your first two supporting arguments and their illustrations. Thank you to the 4 of you who did this, really a joy to read. :)
