Lack of Marriage Education is Contributing to High Divorce Rate in the US
Date:9/23/2013

Los Angeles CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2013

According to the recent published statistics by the United Nations Demographic Yearbook, a collection of global statistics United States rank #6 in the world in divorce rate.

A study done by a US divorce lawyer indicated that married adults now divorce two-and-a-half times as often as adults did 20 years ago and four times as often as they did 50 years ago. Between 40% and 60% of new marriages will eventually end in divorce.

The family unit is the basic building block of society. The first step of creating a family is through marriage.

However, if separation and divorce has become the "normal" consequence, what would become of our society if this marriage trend continues?

"It is very known that society falls apart when you break apart the family unit." said marital expert and matchmaker Hellen Chen from Los Angeles.

"The impact of a failed relationship is more than what most people are willing to admit. A failed marriage affects the individual, the younger generation and if this is widespread, it will bring down the morale of a society." Chen said.

Having brought together many married couples who had been resistive about marriage in the first place and then helping them to stay in marriage afterwards, Chen shares real-life stories in her latest book "The Matchmaker of the Century" which since launched, has become a number one bestseller on Barnes and Noble.

Having written 22 books on the subject of marriage, family and the responsibilities of individuals, Chen said, "I have lectured around the globe and met many people from all walks of life. There are tremendous number of false ideas about what a marriage is and there is virtually no formal education on helping a young person to understand how to have a lasting relationship."

Chen stated that the common "marriage education" merely consists of advice from well-meaning family members or associates, or from the internet or just conclusions from one's experiences.

According to a recent Census Bureau report, the divorce rate of second or third marriages is just as high as first time marriages, if not higher. Thus the second or third time round may not necessarily be a charm.

To increase marriage education and awareness for the public, Chen started a series of love workshops in both Asia and in America. She has just completed 2 seminars in Asia and will be heading to US for her next love seminar in Los Angeles on Oct. 12.

Chen said, "We have been taught to walk away from problems. If you don't like a job, quit. If you don't like your parent, just stop talking to them. If you don't like your spouse, divorce. Thus I am here to challenge people to take a different attitude. Instead of saying, 'Who cares?' Why not say, 'What am I not doing enough?'"
