Most people would agree a happy marriage is one of the life’s great treasures. Unfortunately, the odds of making a good marital union are not in our favor. The divorce rate in the U.S. is at least fifty percent. In some urban areas it is even higher, and this figure does not include separations, desertions, or marriages that stay together, but probably should not.
Social scientists believe that only around twenty-five percent of all marriages work satisfactorily, and some believe the percentage is as low as ten percent. The children from this small group of successful families usually have the best chance to achieve their optimal potential. The offspring from the other seventy-five percent are often emotionally handicapped to some degree. In other words, an awful lot of people are living less than satisfactory lives.
This is not to say that we must come from happy, intact families in order to have a contented life, but our chances are greater. While it is true that role modeling by both parents at home is important, many people raised in single parent homes, provided they were loved and nurtured, greatly benefit from the experience.
Nevertheless, the lack of a partner clearly imposes additional child-rearing burdens. It is also true; however, the partners in some two-parent households are so hostile to each other that divorce is often best for everyone, especially the children. There is no doubt that a good number of children from many homes are psychologically damaged by destructive experiences resulting from frequent angry interactions with parents that are dissatisfied, frustrated, and unhappy in their marriages. Thus, poor matrimonial choices diminish our children’s lives as well as our own.
Fortunately, modern matrimonial therapy methods have made important inroads into this problem. Nevertheless, even the best techniques when used by the most skillful therapists cannot help make a matrimonial life age satisfactory when the marital affiliation is a bad fit, to begin with. Tragically, a great number of marriages are inherently disharmonious.
It appears that numerous couples from these unsuitable unions because they do not know what to look for in a mate; others settle for partners they know are incompatible, but hope that after they marry, somehow, their mates will change, and their relationships will get better. Unfortunately, they seldom do. If they manage to avoid divorce, their marriages frequently settle into angry, cheerless, or deenergised forms of coexistence.
Nevertheless, you can prevent this difficulty. The first task in making a happy matrimonial life is choosing the right partner and one way to ensure this selection is to become aware of the factors that make a person suitable. It is important to know, however, the best time to consider these questions is well before marriage.
This is because once you meet someone and “fall in love” it becomes difficult to assess the strength and weaknesses of your relationship. Nevertheless, many people will already be in committed relationships. If you are seriously dating or even living a matrimonial life, you will still benefit from an awareness of the dynamics that contribute to marital success.
One way to avoid choosing the wrong life partner is by contracting an investigator to carry out what is known as a pre matrimonial investigation. Once the investigation process is finished you will have proofs or evidence that the person you have chosen is right for you. In the Wasser Agency we offer this kind of services with professional investigators specialized in this area, we are located in Miami Beach/South Beach, Florida.
Government agencies also ask for matrimonial investigations due to cases of fake ("sham") marriage as a means of getting U.S. lawful permanent residence (a green card).
A sham marriage is one that is entered into in order to get around the U.S. immigration laws. For a marriage to be valid under the law, it is not enough that the couple had a real marriage ceremony and got all the right governmental stamps on their marriage certificate.
They have to intend to live in a real marital relationship, namely to establish a life together, following the marriage ceremony, and prove their intention through their actions. If the couple doesn’t intend to establish a life together, their marriage is a sham, and only through a matrimonial investigation, the government discovers the fraud after the matrimonial investigation.

Detecting marriage frauds is a top priority for USCIS. USCIS officers still quote a survey from the 1980s which found that up to 30% of marriages between aliens and U.S. citizens are suspect. That survey has since been shown to be deeply flawed, but its legacy lives on.
To detect frauds, the immigration authorities require a lot of proof that a marriage is real, including more documentation than for other family-based immigration applicants. They subject marriage-based immigrants to a longer and more detailed personal interview than other applicants go through, as well as a two-year testing period for couples who have been married less than two years when their green card is approved or when they enter the U.S. on their immigrant visa.
The U.S. government will not normally follow a couple around or carry out a matrimonial investigation of their life beyond the required paperwork and the interviews it always conducts. But it has the power to do a matrimonial investigation if it sees grounds for suspicion.
Matrimonial Investigators of the Department of Homeland Security can visit your home, talk to your friends, interview your employers, and so on. By requiring more of married couples than of others, the U.S. government has set up a system that gives it a lot of information about whether a marriage is the real thing or not.
Next, on this article, The Wasser Agency will give you a brief explanation on how you can carry out a matrimonial investigation.
A primary reason why arranged marriages continue to find favor even in this age of personal freedom is that the practice assures a certain degree of familiarity with a potential partner’s economic and marital status. However, the close-knit clan kinship system which earlier offered more information on prospective alliances is disintegrating today and one often does not know who he/she is marrying. Here are a few ways to make a matrimonial investigation of a person you are considering marrying as part of an arranged alliance; this is what is known as a matrimonial investigation.
Tap the family network
Family events like weddings are common occasions when parents look for potential partners for their children. In most cases of arranged marriages, the proposal is brought forth by some member of the extended family. If you are on good terms with the family members of the grandaunt or paternal uncle who has suggested a prospective partner for you, ask them more about the person, his/her family, education, and profession.
However, if you are not comfortable asking such details, rope in siblings, cousins or trusted relatives who can do some background checking for you. Every extended family has at least one member who makes it his/her business to know about others and this person is sure to prove a mine of information on your prospective match.
Investigate by asking the help of friends
Often family members are not forthcoming with marital or financial details of a prospective partner if they feel these may jeopardize a promising alliance. In this case, look for friends and acquaintances common to you and your prospective partner who can tell you more about the latter.
Cultural celebrations and community get-togethers are ideal occasions to ask around as you are sure to meet someone who used to live near your would-be partner, took tennis lessons or went to college with him/her. Sometimes mutual friends may not be keen to divulge personal details and in this case you can tap past acquaintances, course-mates or neighbors who may not be overly bothered by scruples.
Visit the workplace
In order to get a complete picture of the person who you are about to marry, it is crucial to know about his/her professional life. See if you know someone from his/her office or workplace. If not, then explore your social circle for someone who does and ask to accompany him/her to your prospective partner’s workplace.
This will not only let you make an investigation on his/her professional and financial status but also allow you to get an idea of the kind of person, well-liked, hard-working, opportunistic, careless, he/she is. In the event that you know nobody at all from your would-be partner’s workplace, you could also pretend to be a customer, client or some other interested party in order to obtain entry to the workplace.
However, be careful how you play your cards here since a slip-up can not only lead to embarrassment but also land you in trouble for impersonation. Investigating at the workplace can help you verify the claims about the designation, salary and job profile in case of someone who's working for an organization.
Use a direct approach
Many times the first-hand exposure to your prospective partner’s social life can work better than investigating through third parties. In many traditional societies, arranged marriages meant that prospective partners were rarely allowed to meet each other before the actual wedding. However, with changing times, families no longer mind the young people going out on dates once an alliance has been formalized.
So encourage your would-be partner to take you to his/her office parties or favorite hang-outs. Keep your eyes and ears open for signs that someone may be hiding something or eager to share some information. Look for awkward pauses in a conversation or abrupt changes in topics and then follow them up later.
You may be able to get more from a casual guest at a friend’s birthday bash than from a mutual friend or family member.
Hire a professional
If your upcoming marriage is part of an arranged alliance, it is unlikely that you will be living together before the wedding. This means that you have less access to your partner’s cell phone or computer for doing a long-term background check.
However, these days there are several kinds of mobile phone spy software’s available in the market and you can register for a wide range of electronic surveillance services. On the other hand, if you wish to obtain definite information on the person’s past and present circumstances without getting your own hands dirty, your best bet would be a private matrimonial investigator.
But before you hire a private matrimonial detective, make sure that the agency has a valid license to carry on its business. Also, insist on a written contract which clearly specifies the charges and kind of information it is expected to provide on his/her investigation.
Private matrimonial investigators can be rather expensive so consider your finances before you decide to use this option. Interestingly in many cultures where arranged marriages are the norm, private matrimonial detectives may be hired by the families and not just the would-be bride or groom to make the investigation’s authenticity of information given during marriage negotiations and the overall suitability of the prospective match.
There are several reasons why you may want to make an investigation of the person whom you are being encouraged to marry as part of an arranged alliance. Unlike lovers, would-be partners here know little about each other’s private lives and past. A guy may seem like the ideal match unless one discovers that he already has a child by a previous partner.
Or an apparently shy young woman may have a history of drug abuse. Besides these, there are health as well as financial issues too since potential matches may not be forthcoming about STDs or bad mortgages tucked away in a secret corner of their lives.
In cultures where the social stigma and legal complexity associated with obtaining a divorce is huge, it makes more sense to thoroughly make an investigation of a potential match before going ahead with the wedding. Arranged marriages are after all based on the practical, as opposed to emotional, suitability of a marital alliance and if one needs to make a few inquiries to be assured, then why not?
