Singapore often scores poorly in surveys on marriages and relationships.
A 2016 Prudential Relationship Index, based on an online survey of 500 Singaporeans, shows about a quarter of married people are thinking of divorce.
Also sobering for couples are divorce statistics from last year. In 2015, there were 7,522 divorces and annulments, the third highest annual figure on record, according to a report by the Department of Statistics released in July.
In the Prudential survey, couples say what they argue over include children and money. But here’s a startling statistic for those glued to their mobile devices.
One in four couples fight over the amount of time spent on the phone. Their partners prefer spending time with their mobile phones and not them, said 32 per cent of respondents.
