Abstract: This article examines the trends and patterns in the way the secular divorce law has been utilized by couples in Singapore seeking to end their marriage. Social and demographic features of the divorcing couples, as well as the 'fact' relied on in support of their divorce petitions, are studied and compared to earlier analyses. It is found that while some patterns observed by earlier researchers have remained intact, others have changed. This article suggests explanations for these observed patterns and contributes to the discussion on whether and how the divorce law can be improved in Singapore and elsewhere.
