The lessons on how to build lasting relationships are lessons to be learned at as young of an age as possible
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
In a recent seminar, relationship guru and media favorite Hellen Chen discussed marital problems with a group of singles and couples, pointing out how most of these problems stem from poor communication, despite the couple’s best intentions.
Statistics from InfidelityFacts.com reveal that 41% of married men and women admit to infidelity, either emotional or physical.
The problem of infidelity has become so rampant that websites are being created for married men and women to seek affairs. According to these website owners, it is not an “uncommon practice” to engage in infidelity.
According to Chen, whose work has touched tens of thousands of men and women find partners, get married and stay married, these problems are often resultant rather than causal; they are the product of deeper problems.
“Before infidelity occurs in a marriage, communication between the two individuals is already in trouble,” said Chen during a recent interview in Los Angeles.
When asked about the rising divorce rates around the world, Chen spoke about how the learning to keep up relationships has always taken a back seat to learning about how to perform in Academics or perform in one's career.
“We know how to make money and excel in our careers, but getting along with our partners seems to be the hardest thing to do,” she pointed out.
“The lessons on how to build lasting relationships are lessons to be learned at as young of an age as possible.” she said.
According to Chen, infidelity and quarrels about finances are not the main problem. The fact that many couples cannot communicate well creates a situation in which when they are unable to solve their problems together, they choose separation.
“It is not that divorced couples don't their marriage vows seriously, they simply do not realize that their communication skills, or lack thereof, have a profound effect on their ability to sustain their relationships,” said Chen.
Chen’s book, ‘The Matchmaker of the Century’ was a number one bestseller on Barnes and Noble. In it, Chen shares real stories of couples that overcame various challenges in their relationships after taking her advice.
She recently released another book, ‘The 10 Most Important Lessons for Life’, in which she shares the lessons not taught in schools but that will help people live happier, more fulfilling lives.
Chen will also be holding a Love Seminar on December 27 at the Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. She will be discussing infidelity and other marriage and relationship problems with both single and married men and women who are either looking for love or want to improve their relationships.
