"Contrary to popular belief, marriage is not about the ending nor the death of romance and love." - The Matchmaker of the Century
- Do you believe that you can have a perfect marriage?
- What kind of happiness do you want?
- Who are you looking for to be your lifelong partner?
- Whose hand will you hold in your hand?
Despite advancement in technology and science, the subject of marriage and love seems to be as confusing as ever. News of affairs, divorces, separations fill up magazine and tabloids front pages. Families break apart and marriage becomes a 'disposable' item like the plastic utensils one throws away after use.
Hellen Chen's "The Matchmaker of the Century" takes on the subject of marriage in a tough modern world.
With the support of a loving husband, this lone matchmaker — unlike ordinary matchmakers — helps men and women who have given up on relationships, lost faith in marriages and resistive about love and brings them together on a fascinating journey of change.
You will learn about why dating actually comes AFTER marriage, not before.
Real-life stories of couples featured in the book were made into a full length documentary "Let's Fall in Love" by an award-winning director. This popular documentary was shown in international film festivals around the world and garnered critical reviews.
A note from the author:
I have always dreamed about having a perfect marriage.
This search took me through many disappointments and hardships and finally, about 20 years ago, I met my current husband and since then, I realized that a perfect marriage is obtainable! It is obtainable by just you being willing to learn how to make a 'perfect marriage' happen.
That is why I wrote this book 'The Matchmaker of the Century' to teach men and women that true love is closer to you than you think!
I would like those who have at one point have a dream of a wonderful relationship make that dream come true.
This book is filled with real stories of how ordinary men and women overcome adversities in their relationship to make it through. Some has to go through a divorce to then learn the right lessons. Some has to experience fear, hate and anger before they realized that they could break through.
There is such a thing as true love. I know that because as a matchmaker, I have helped men and women who had disregarded the existence of love to decide then to spend the rest of their lives with each other.
But you have to know how to find love and most importantly, how to create it with your partner.
Hope this book will transform you - the way it has transformed many!
I wish you well on this journey of life-long transformation!
Matchmaker of the Century
I am enjoying Hellen's book immensely. Lots of people have written lots of words on this subject. What sets this book apart is the fact that what Hellen lays out here is not just theory, but hard won practical and usable truths about marriage. She communicates what she has found with a lot of certainty and also with a lot of compassion for the things that people need to overcome in order to create a happy marriage. She disabuses people of defeatist ideas that have caused them to abandon the idea of even trying to create a happy marriage. And for those who have a happy marriage, she shows how that can be even better.
Hellen's fearless attitude and optimism concerning the ability of people to create happy marriages encourages them to overcome their own fears and past losses, and puts them on a path to a much happier life than the one they would have had as a single person.
Hellen's book is very valuable and well-worth the read.
I was surprised that I'd find this book as interesting as I did. I actually read it through the first day I got it. I found it fascinating with its positive view on marriage and relationships. Seeing relationships from a viewpoint of Chinese culture made it even more interesting, yet the truth of the human condition was universal. I got some great insights into my fixed views past and present that were blocking my true expression of what I wanted in a relationship. I realized, even at my age, romance and a soul mate on same goal lines would be a lovely experience. So, many of the stories with their all too familiar human emotions were enlightening.
Do read it.. Enjoy,

I have seen this author interviewed on fox and liked her views on why staring a marriage earlier is better than later. I understand even more after reading her book. I recommend this book to all the guys who are searching for a perfect gal. Maybe the gal is right in front of you and you have missed it!
Found this book so helpful. Would recommend it to all of my friends.
I have thought that I needed to work hard to find "the right match" in order to have a marriage that lasts. After reading the real stories in the Matchmaker of the Century, I know that thinking of having to have a perfect match is what kept me from missing out on so many opportunities to settle down with someone.
After reading this book, I proposed to my girlfriend. Result: I am getting married!!
After the failure of two marriages, I have pretty much given up on settling down with someone. However, this book gives me a different look at marriage. For the first time, I now understand why my last two marriages failed. Just for that alone, I wish to thank the author for sharing her advice. It is definitely a worthwhile read.
