Marriage Preparation Programmes (MPP) for Singaporean-foreigner Couples
New Marriage Preparation Programme (MPP) for Singaporean-foreigner couples
MPP for Singaporean-foreigner couples
From 1 December 2014, a Marriage Preparation Programme (MPP) for Singaporean-foreigner couples will be offered at the Registry of Marriages (ROM) as part of the civil marriage registration process.
The MPPs help couples gain more insights into cross-cultural issues in their marriage, building the foundation for a strong marriage.
MPP for Muslim Singaporean-foreigner couples
Couples marrying at the Registry of Muslim Marriages (ROMM) can sign up for a MPP customised for Muslim Singaporean-foreigner marriages from 1 December 2014.
Marriage Support Programme (MSP)
A MSP will be introduced to help couples manage cross-cultural differences as they settle down. The programme will offer conversational language skills to the foreign spouse, and also point out avenues to seek job opportunities. Trained “buddies” volunteers to assist cross-cultural couples, will be present at these programmes to befriend them. All Singaporean-foreigner couples are encouraged to attend these programmes.
