Abstract: The Singapore government has deemed the current family trends to be detrimental to the nation’s development. These trends include: ultra-low fertility rates, the delayed age of marriage and increasing divorce percentages, which threaten the stability of families and have harmful impacts on society. The Church is a social institution that shapes individuals’ attitudes through its teachings on marriage and relationships. Thus, this paper seeks to uncover the attitudes and perspectives that young Catholic women have while being socialized in a society that is increasingly exposed to Western patterns, which may perpetuate these trends in the Singapore society. Through the research findings, it is observed that the respondents have attitudes and beliefs that are in line with the Churches’ teachings and supports the governments’ ideals of promoting family life.
