2.5 million Malaysians unmarried


Depending on which part of the world you are living the figure may or may not be staggering. In the case of Malaysia, 2.5 million tells us that 9% or one in every 11 persons are unmarried.

In 2010, the Population and Housing Census of Malaysia showed that this figure comprised 60.4% men and 38.6% women.

Survey: More men than women unmarried

National Population and Family Development Board did a survey and found the followings:

1) 32.1% of respondents had never married
2) Of this, 55.6% were men and 44.4% women

Reasons for not marrying (the guys)

44.7% - financial problem
19.3% - no suitable candidates
12.8% - career
6.3% - family commitment
16.9% - other reasons

Reasons for not marrying (the girls)

40.0% - no eligible suitors
14.0% - financial problems
8.4% - career
8.4% - comfort in being single
6.3% - family commitment
7.4% - other reasons

If you tune in to local radio broadcast now, Sabah VFM is currently actively interacting with listeners to find out their views.

To get married, or stay single - that's entirely up to the individual isn't it?
