Foreign Marriages #
A foreign marriage may be treated as invalid for lack of capacity or other grounds of invalidity under the law of the place where the marriage took place. Formal validity of a foreign marriage is governed by the law of the place where the marriage was carried out.
A foreign marriage is valid under Singapore law if both parties have capacity to marry under the laws of their respective country.
Foreign Civil partnerships #
Singapore does not recognise civil partnerships. Marriages between persons of the same gender are void under the Women’s Charter.
