The Registry of Marriages (abbreviated to ROM) is a government agency in Singapore that administers all marriages carried out in the country and solemnizes civil marriages.[1]


Marriage records in Singapore date back to the year 1875. On 15 September 1961 Civil Marriages came into force under legislation. The Registry was formed at the same time.[1] ROM was originally located in Fort Canning Park, opposite Park Mall Shopping Centre, but in 1983 it moved to its current premises at Canning Rise.

The Registry of Marriages keeps a record of all couples married in Singapore and issues the official marriage certificate after solemnisation. Part of the mission of ROM is to administer the Women Charter Act in civil marriages. ROM is an agency of the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports.
