Head of Family Law of PKWA Law Practice Lim Chong Boon comments in the Straits Times article titled “More break-ups among less educated”. The article was first published on 30 October 2016.

The article shares with readers how there is a higher rate of divorce among the less educated.  

Below is an excerpt from the article which features comments from Lim Chong Boon:

When it comes to marriage, love is not enough.

Money matters, and the lack of it can easily tear a marriage apart.

The proportion of non-university-educated men who end up divorced by their fifth wedding anniversary is two to three times that of their university-educated peers, according to government data tracking the 20,000-plus resident couples who wed each year. 

Family lawyer Lim Chong Boon added that for couples who are struggling financially, often the final straw is when one party cheats or gambles. He said: “If the husband does not provide for the family and he gambles or he does not treat the wife well, the women often leave. Why should they stay?”
