Head of Family Law of PKWA Law Practice Lim Chong Boon comments in the Straits Times article titled “Singaporeans are cheating with their colleagues; counsellors see more extra-marital affairs”. The article was first published on 19 April 2019.

The article shares with readers how there is an increase in infidelity cases in Singapore.

Below is an excerpt from the article which features comments from Lim Chong Boon:

“There were 7,578 marriages that ended in divorce or annulment in 2017.

Official statistics do not reflect the actual number of infidelity cases since many couples choose to file for divorce on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour instead of adultery, where a higher level of proof is needed to show evidence of sexual relations outside a marriage.

This evidence might take the form of admission from a cheating spouse or a private investigator’s report.

Mr Lim Chong Boon, the head of family law at PKWA Law Practice, said: “The numbers do not reflect the true situation on the ground. Both parties usually agree to an amicable divorce rather than go through more sensational grounds.”

About a third of his firm’s clients go in with suspicions of infidelity: “People can put up with a partner’s issues like gambling but the last straw is usually cheating.”
