Marriages between Singaporeans and foreigners

About one in every three marriages in 2015 was between a Singapore citizen and a foreigner, according to the Population in Brief 2016 report. For the foreign spouse, he/she may face several uncertainties being in a new country with limited social support. For the foreign spouse living away from family, starting anew in a foreign country, transiting and adjusting to a new culture can be challenging. The foreign spouse can get support on his/her own or the couple can get support together to deepen their relationship as they start a new life together.
