If we had a complete theory, it would be a TOE.
GR is incomplete. But I thank you for appreciating my views.

The singularity problem is a problem in math. If you get a singularity in a theory, the theory is therefore incorrect. Particle theories like QED or QCD get singularities but then use the trick of renormalization to remove the singularities. Otherwise the theory is not correct. Once the singularities in QED are removerd, it is the most accurate theory in existence. But only once the singularity is removed.

Renormalization solves the singularity problem in oarticle theories. TOEs solve the singularity problem in GR.
