Parental Matchmaking for Singaporeans

Singaporeans are now moving back in time when it comes to marriage. Well, behind their back, that is. Apparently parents who have given up their single children looking for their own partners have decided to take matters in their own hands. They turn up for parental matchmaking session to find partners for their children between the ages 25 - 45 years old.

Woo hoo, this is the second session after a successful first session in September when 80 parents turned up. And what is surprising is that knowing how some of their children will protest, some of these parents are doing it without their children's knowledge.

In this event, there are also talks on how to bring up this subject to their children without letting them liken this event to something like an arranged marriage. Organisers deemed this as a way to interract and expand social networks.

Well, good luck Parents!
