Instead of living off the wealth of their other halves, Mrs Cheryl Low and Mrs Lynn Yeow-De Vito have chosen to stand up on their feet by starting up their own businesses.
In an interview with The New Paper, Mrs Low -- who's married to the co-owner of local hardware chain Home-Fix -- revealed that she wanted to fulfill her childhood ambition of being a career woman who can live comfortably in her own wealth.
The 35-year-old, who owns a business selling home spa and aromatherapy products, went on to explain that the role of a stay-home mother scares her as she "once took a two-month break from work...(and) I just found myself getting duller by the day."
Echoing her views was Mrs Yeow-De Vito, who craved for the financial independence a job will bring.
Giving an example of her wanting to buy a bag, Yeow-De Vito said that holding a job meant she didn't have to "think twice when I use my own money".
Despite all this, the two are also severely committed to their familes -- Low sometimes sleeps at 5am as she splits her time between the office and her kids while Yeow-De Vito sets out the evenings and weekends for her husband and two kids.
After reading the report, STOMPer WAGs wrote in to salute the two.
The STOMPer wrote:
"It's good to see both Cheryl Low and Lynn Yeow-De Vito have 'backbone' and rather not be just a trophy wife who gets paraded around at functions.
"Credit to them for daring to come out of their comfort zone and taking a risk just so they can make a mark for themselves."
"If anything, I hope the same for couples out there -- to be able to do what they want to do, without sacrificing precious time with their families."
