Description - The Shidduch Crisis by Michael J. Salamon

Examining the very real difficulties faced by the dating public in the modern Orthodox world, this study looks at the increase in divorce rates and eating disorders, complaints regarding a shortage of men, and the move away from socializing activities to the extensive use of third-party matchmakers. The book argues that many matches are based on availability rather than compatibility, and on a host of superficial criteria that have little relevance to the factors that make a marriage truly successful. Citing relevant data from the fields of psychology, sociology, and neurology, and drawing on anecdotes from a wide range of people, well-known psychologist and lecturer Dr. Michael Salamon provides guidelines to alleviate this crisis.
