More Singaporeans are marrying outside their own ethnic groups. Nearly a quarter – or 22.1 per cent – of the marriages in 2017 were between brides and grooms of different ethnic groups, up from 16.4 per cent in 2007.

There were 22,162 civil marriages and 6.050 Muslim marriages in 2017, up from 22,017 and 5,954 respectively in 2016, according to the Singapore Department of Statistics.

Inter-ethnic marriages were more common among the Muslims, accounting for 38 per cent of the Muslim marriages in 2017, up from 29.7 per cent in 2007. Inter-ethnic civil marriages also increased, from 13.7 per cent in 2007 to 17.7 per cent in 2017.

Among the 3,925 inter-ethnic civil marriages in 2017, those between Chinese grooms and “Others” brides formed the largest share at 47.7 per cent. (“Others” refers to all ethnic groups excluding the Chinese, Malays, Indians, Eurasians and Caucasians in Singapore.)

Indian grooms marrying Malay brides accounted for 10.8 per cent – and Indian brides marrying Malay grooms, 8 per cent – of the inter-ethnic Muslim marriages.

More than three-quarters of all marriages were between brides and grooms marrying for the first time. The remaining marriages comprised remarriages for either one partner (15 per cent) or both partners (7.7 per cent).

The median age of first-time grooms was 30 years – virtually unchanged from a decade ago – while that of first-time brides rose from 27.2 in 2007 to 28.4 years in 2017.

The median age of grooms remarrying rose from 41.3 years in 2007 to 43.3 years in 2017. For brides remarrying, the median age rose from 35.1 years to 37.4 years.

Marriages were increasingly taking place between couples of the same age and educational qualification.

In 2017, 40.4 per cent of couples in their first marriage were either of the same age or one year apart, up from 33.4 per cent in 2007. Conversely, the proportion who were at least five years apart decreased from 30.2 per cent in 2007 to 21.4 per cent in 2017.

During the same period, the proportion of university-educated grooms marrying brides with the same educational qualification rose from 74.3 per cent to 82.2 per cent in civil marriages, and from 52.3 per cent to 61.5 per cent in Muslim marriages,

As for brides in civil marriages, slightly more than three-quarters of those with university degrees married grooms with the same qualification in 2017, marginally higher than in 2007. Similarly, the  proportion of university-educated Muslim brides who married a groom with the same qualification increased from 41.1 per cent to 43.1 per cent.
