Staff of INSPIRASI PPIS will engage couples and their parents to find out how to further strengthen their relationships, address potential concerns that couples and/or their parents may have and discuss post-marriage plans. Couples and their parents will be introduced to INSPIRASI’s programmes and services that will support them in their marital journey.
Couples will learn essential skills and knowledge to build a strong foundation in their marriage through fun and interactive workshops. We also have workshops for parents and/or guardians so that they are able to guide the couples in their marriage.
Couples can gain skills and knowledge to manage challenges and strengthen family life through interactive couples and/or family activities.
Couples can learn from peers and the facilitator on how to address practical issues in the marriage and provide information and tips to help couples enrich their marriage and family life. Through these sessions, they can provide mutual support to one another along their marital journey.
The sessions will provide couples further support in managing challenges in their marriage.

I am able to spend ample time with my family (when volunteering) and be more patient to handle ourparents and in-laws.
We learnt communication and conflict negotiation skills, which allow us to explain and negotiate better while achieving our own goals.
Spouses will learn about themselves, their future spouses, as well as their parents more deeply. Couples can also improve their skills and be more willing to get married. Other than that, we also get acquainted with other young couples. With that, we can get support from these new friends before and after marriage, where we all share our experiences.
Young marriages typically pertain to marriages where one or both partners are under the age of 25. However, the definition can vary based on cultural, social, and personal factors. In Singapore, young marriages are those whom either partner is below 21 years old, or if the groom-to-be is 21 to below 25 years old, or if the bride-to-be is 21 years old and above.
The benefits of young marriages can vary greatly depending on the individuals involved. Some may grow and develop a shared sense of purpose and direction. Some may start a family earlier in life. While others may face life-changing challenges.
Effective communication, mutual respect, shared values and goals, financial stability, and emotional maturity are some key factors that may contribute to successful young marriages. Not to mention, each should have the ability to navigate challenges and adapt to change. These factors play a significant role in building a strong and lasting relationship.
