Majudi (L), with her chaperone Norwati (2nd L), smile at Halal Speed Dating, a matchmaking event, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia October 3, 2015. Halal Speed Dating, a new matchmaking event in Kuala Lumpur, is helping Malaysian Muslims find partners in a largely conservative society where courtship is frowned upon and marriages are often arranged. The dating service is halal, meaning permissible under Islamic law, as it is practised with an Islamic twist: women speed daters must be chaperoned by a wali, or guardian until she gets married and who grants her the permission to do so.

A woman sits during a matchmaking event for middle-aged singles and seniors, sponsored by Shanghai's government, in Shanghai November 9, 2013. The event, which drew 30,000 participants last year, started catering for those over 45 to satisfy demand from the growing numbers of divorcees, said Xu Tianli, vice chairman of the Shanghai Matchmaking Agency Management Association, an organiser of the event. Divorce rates in China have risen for seven years in a row. In 2012, year-on-year growth in divorces outpaced the increase in marriages for the first time, according to official data. Rising levels of divorce have not escaped the notice of China's government, which is concerned that broken homes will erode social stability. To mend ailing marriages and encourage senior singles to date, China has introduced a wide range of measures. To match story CHINA-MARRIAGE/SENIORS Picture taken November 9, 2013.

A make-up artist applies cosmetics as women prepare to participate in a mass wedding, organised as part of a matchmaking event to inspire singles to get married, in a suburban area of Shanghai May 18, 2013. As couples celebrate the "Qixi" festival on Tuesday, the Chinese equivalent of Valentine's Day, millions of women face stark choices in a society where traditional ideas about matrimonial hierarchy run up against huge economic and social changes sweeping the world's most populous country. There are plenty of men to go round among China's nearly 1.4 billion people but social status can conspire against single professional women, sometimes making it difficult to find a partner.
