Though identified as one of the major social challenges confronting the Malay community, there is still at present, a gross lack of research necessary for an objective understanding of the phenomenon. The adverse implications of the lacunae are reinforced by instant solutions and prescriptions aimed at eradicating the problem. Utilising data obtained from interviews and responses to a survey administered to Malay teenage married couples, this paper examines dominant perceptions of teenage marriage in Singapore and their ramifications on policies and programmes. It is hoped that this paper can contribute towards a more objective understanding of the problem so vital for effective policy making. © 2009 BRILL.||Source Title:||Asian Journal of Social Science||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/130000||ISSN:||15684849||DOI:||10.1163/156848409X12474536440546|
