In Singapore’s  diverse and multicultural society, the dynamics of dating, relationship and marriage preferences have been shaped by various factors. This includes nationality, race, and cultural backgrounds. Let’s delve deeper into the views of HappyDotters on cross-cultural relationships and their preferences for cohabitation before marriage.

A poll conducted amongst HappyDotters revealed the top five nationalities they are open to dating. The findings indicate that Singapore Residents considered their fellow citizens as their most preferred partners, followed by Malaysians, Taiwanese, Japanese and Koreans.Delving deeper, how about dating someone of another racial group? 74.7% HappyDotters say Yes to having an interracial relationship.

The poll also highlighted a segment of the population who expressed reservations about dating individuals from a different race. The primary reasons cited for this reluctance were religious differences, divergent values and culture, and lack of family support. The results gave us valuable insights into HappyDotters’ dating preferences, highlighting both acceptance and reservations towards nationality and interracial relationships. Moving forward, let’s get their views on cohabitation – their attitudes and preferences regarding living together before marriage.

Almost 60% are open to the idea of cohabiting before marriage. This indicates a shift in traditional conservative mindsets and an increasing acceptance of alternative relationship dynamics. As cited in the poll, the top three factors influencing this acceptance include the desire to test compatibility and explore living together before making a lifelong commitment, financial stability as a prerequisite for cohabitation and the need for companionship.

However, it is important to acknowledge that some individuals remain opposed to cohabitation. The primary reasons cited by this group include religious beliefs, concerns that cohabitation may not always lead to marriage and the perception of going against the societal norm.

These findings demonstrate the diverse opinions among Singaporeans regarding cohabitation, reflecting the intersection of personal values, cultural backgrounds, and societal expectations. The perspectives provide a valuable insight into the complexities of modern relationships and paves the way for further discussions on evolving relationship dynamics in Singaporean society.
