A common phenomenon in Singapore is the early registration of marriage followed, sometime later, by a customary or religious wedding ceremony and the setting up of a new family unit. This article examines the law's response to this phenomenon and the attitudes of those to whom the law is applied. It seeks to understand both the gap and the interaction between the two and suggests way forward.
