Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 26, 2012
A recent United Nations statistics division survey ranked US #5 in the world for divorce rate among 200 countries.
Recent studies by the CDC indicated that the ratio of new marriages to divorce is 2 to 1. That means, for every 2 new marriages that occur, there is 1 divorce case happening.
This is one of the highest number recorded in the US.
What is the reason behind the divorce rate being so high despite living in a country that is known to have no shortage of information or education resources?
"We have knowledge of technology and Sciences. But there is a lack of understanding of what marriage is all about," explained marital expert and bestselling author Hellen Chen from Los Angeles, California.
"There is this idea that one has to date for a number of years first to check out if someone is suitable for you or not. But what is missing in this assessment is that even if that person seems 'suitable' now, he or she may change ten years later well into the marriage," said Chen in a iHeart radio interview, "So are you going to change your spouse every 10 years just because he or she changed?"
There was another statistics from the CDC that showed 2nd and 3rd marriages are even more prone to divorces that 1st marriages.
Chen, having worked with many men and women who had faced divorces, found that constant dating and getting heart-broken cause more havoc for the longevity of a marriage than most people are able to admit.
Chen is also an unorthodox matchmaker who have brought together many couples who had been resistive about marriage in the first place, bringing unwilling men and women together and turning their lives around by guiding them on how to maintain a lasting marriage.
Chen also shares real-life stories in her bestselling book "The Matchmaker of the Century", which recently became the #1 bestselling marriage and relationship book on Barnes and Noble.
"Romance does not stop after wedding day," smiled Chen, "For those who have a New Year's resolution to enjoy more romance in their life, learn this subject well and you will live in romance every moment."
