    Default Who can marry who?

    An interesting question arose in another thread: under Singapore law, is first cousin marriage allowed? Also, can say my wife's brother marry my sister (not that I have one)?

    The Singapore laws are easily available online:

    Women's Charter Chapter 353: http://statutes.agc.gov.sg/aol/searc...26;rec=0#legis

    Relevant to your query is Section 10:

    Marriages within prohibited degrees
    10.
    —(1) A marriage solemnized in Singapore or elsewhere between a man and any of the persons mentioned in the first column of the First Schedule, or between a woman and any of the persons mentioned in the second column of that Schedule, shall be void.

    (2) Notwithstanding subsection (1) and the First Schedule, the Minister may, in his discretion, grant a licence under this section for a marriage to be solemnized, notwithstanding the kindred or affinity of the parties, if the Minister is satisfied that the marriage is valid under the law, religion, custom or usage which would have been applicable to the parties thereto if this Act had not been enacted.

    (3) A marriage solemnized under such a licence shall be valid.

    If a Canon user also uses a Nikon or Olympus camera, is it considered having an affair??
