Focus on the Family Singapore's head of research and development Elisa Ng said: "One would naturally want to maintain stability and restore order as much as they can in their life during uncertain times, and filing for divorce last year, just after Covid-19 hit Singapore, would have further destabilised their lives."
Ms Ng added, however, that the circuit breaker and work from home arrangements would have created more marital tensions, introducing new conflicts or resurfacing old ones, between some couples.
