Marriage is top of the checklist for some singles when they’re looking for a significant other. It’s not easy to bring up on the first date though. Wouldn’t it be amazing if there were a map pointing out where Sydney’s most marriage-minded singles lived? Well, now you mention it…

We looked at anonymous data from 10,000 Sydney residents to find out which neighbourhoods were bursting with eligible marriage-minded singles.

So, how do you determine whose ‘marriage minded’? Simple: we analysed responses from our in-depth personality test that helps us match up prospective partners with compatible singles. The statement, ‘marriage is important to me and should be important to my partner’, can be rated as accurate by a member on a 1-9 ranking system. The higher the number, the more the member rates this statement as important to their dating life.

So, where are the 15 most marriage-minded neighbourhoods in Sydney?
