Quora Answer: Can a Non-Muslim Man Marry a Muslim Woman in Singapore without Converting?

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The following is my answer to a Quora question: “Can a non-Muslim man marry a Muslim woman in Singapore without converting? 

Singapore is a secular state.  A non-Muslim man may marry a Muslim woman, but the marriage has to be registered at the Registry of Marriages, not the Registry of Muslim Marriages.  The process is simple enough, and spelt out in detail on the web site. 

After the marriage, the couple may receive an email from the Registry of Muslim Marriages, asking them if they would like to consider registering their marriage at the Registry of Muslim Marriages.  This would involve the non-Muslim spouse converting, and they will be walked through the conversion process.  This non-obligatory.
