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.
