We all see the revival of the millennium-old traditional matchmaking service industry. People looking for matchmaking service are serious love and marriage seekers. They are quite prepared to pay a huge amount of money in exchange for the highest rate of success in the shortest time possible. The Guinness Book of World Records listed Orly Hod (Orly the Matchmaker) – whose fees run up to $100,000 – as the world’s priciest matchmaker.
We don’t have to look at the statistics before we know more people live longer today than those a century ago; more people get divorced today than those a century ago. We begin to wonder why marriage relationship won’t last longer than those a century ago. Anyone could easily give dozens of reasons.
Of course, most people would think of love and marriage is more an art than a science. But recent research has discovered that even personality and behavior orientations have genetic determinants.
We also see what the matchmakers are basically applying in matching people is the nowadays 'scientific' tool – psychological tests, whether they are called compatibility test, survey or profile.
If the problematic issues of marriage relationship can aptly be resolved by employing compatibility test, life would relatively be easy.
Relationships might not depend on compatibility.
