This cross-cultural wedding shows what it’s like to live in multi-racial Singapore

TL;DR – Regardless of race, language or religion.

Living in a harmonious, multiracial country is something we proudly proclaim all the time as Singaporeans. Yet when it comes to inter-racial relationships and marriages, social acceptance remains mixed.

And fewer than half of Indian respondents indicated acceptance of a non-Indian, according to the survey by Channel NewsAsia in partnership with the Institute of Policy Studies.
