"In Islam, yes, of course you have to involve the father actually, because the father is the lady’s guardian," Munirah tells Channel NewsAsia. "So if a guy wants to get married to a lady, it's after receiving the permission of the father. So that's why we'd like to get the father involved as early as possible."

About 5,700 people have signed up for Halal Speed Dating, typically working professionals aged between 25 to 35 who are too busy to meet people the "normal" way. The long-term goal for participants is marriage and that is a condition applicants must agree to at registration.

So far, Halal Speed Dating has had three events, resulting in about 20 couples who are now seriously discussing marriage. The demand is there for more events, but there is one problem.

"Our challenge is to find men actually because out of that 5,700 people who registered, basically just one-third of them are men," Munirah laments. "Of course, the ladies will always ask us: 'Why don't you organise more, bigger events?' But then again sure we can do that, but if there's not enough men, what's the point?"






errrmmmmm ...... I don't see a problem with the ratio of men to women mah? ???  one man can marry 4 wives ...... so just match 4 women lorrrrrr ....... still have men to spare since the ratio is 1 man to 2 woman ......

Seriously, no woman will allow her husband to marry another woman. If the husband loves his wife enough, he will not marry the 2nd woman.

But the 1st wife must give her consent before the husband can marry the 2nd woman.
Seriously, can/do they object? Hmm...
