“We are considering whether to come out with a compatibility test for singles who are dating to see if their future partner is compatible.”

“It was found that most couples rush into marriage without first knowing themselves or their partners well enough. That is why we are considering a compatibility test.”

Hannah Yeoh previously stated that studies show the main cause of marriage breakdowns among young couples in Malaysia was misunderstanding. She further highlighted the top three most frequently cited causes of divorce according to gender.

For women, the three main causes were;

  1. Misunderstanding
  2. Unfaithful spouse
  3. Irresponsible spouse

For men, the reasons were;

  1. Misunderstanding
  2. Interference by in-laws
  3. Infidelity
