In 2019, Singapore saw a dip in the number of couples tying the knot, but the number of divorces and annulments was the country’s highest in at least 20 years.
It’s not uncommon for marital problems to arise from issues such as communication, unresolved baggage from early days, unfulfilled expectations, resentfulness or in some cases, infidelity. Couples should try to at least resolve such issues among themselves.
If that fails, they should consider getting the help of a marriage therapist or a marriage counsellor. This is to say – divorce is a personal choice that should only be made after all other avenues of trying to salvage the marriage, have been exhausted.
