Abstract: With Singapore facing a trend of late marriages, as well as an increasing highly educated population, it is important to study how different types of education could have an impact on marriage probabilities. Adapting from Mincer’s wage regression model, we investigated empirically how the length of study in single-sex and mixed school affect one’s marriage probabilities, while also considering other factors that affect marriage such personal characteristics and dating experiences. Indeed, studying in a single-sex school decrease both men and women’s probability of getting married, with men having a larger effect than women. These findings suggest that studying in mixed schools in Singapore might help to improve the marriage rate in the long run.
