"Touching on what was once a divisive issue, Mr Lee said he used to hold himself responsible for giving women equal education and job opportunities as far back as the 1960s.

This, he said, has led to a growing number of unmarried women graduates.

Mr Lee said: "Singapore women are now as well-educated and earning as much as men. This has altered the husband-wife relationship, and affected the nature of our society. The result has been higher divorce rates, more single-generation families, less children in each family and fewer of the three-generation households."
