I doubt there is anything wrong in law.
The government holds legal title over CPF assets, as it happens. The assets are assigned to you, and they should properly be counted as part of your net worth, but in the strict legal sense they are the government's for the duration.

That seemingly arcane, esoteric legal distinction could be quite important in scenarios like this one, if the government were to conclude that no rational adult (who may also be elderly) would ever agree to this, even for love.

....Wouldn't it be a lot easier to leave Singapore and Malaysia?
