Stronger family ties

Stronger family ties
By Wendy Lim


FAMILY ties among Singapore residents have become stronger, with more married couples choosing to live near or with their parents.

The percentage of younger married couples who live with or in close proximity to their parents rose from 29.3 per cent in 1998 to 35.5 per cent in 2008, according to a Housing Board sample household survey released on Monday.

Another indicator of strong family ties is the frequency of visits between children and their parents, which has remained consistently high through the years. Ninety per cent of married residents visit their parents at least once a month while 20 per cent visit daily.

During these visits, the most common activities they engage in include having meals, exchanging suggestions and advice about personal problems, and going on outings.

Family support is also strong among residents, with support and care mainly coming from their spouses and children.

More than nine in 10 married residents feel that family life is important and are satisfied with it, with happiness in family life coming mainly from good parent-child relationships, family members being in good health, and love and affection between spouses.

And 91.2 per cent of residents said they have family members to care for them when they are ill.
