(MENAFN - Arab News) Los angeles: he claims to have saved hundreds of thousands of marriages. but john gray author of 'men are from mars women are from venus" is worried by where relationships are going — notably online.

gray whose books including the original 1992 classic have been published in 50 languages and sold 50 million copies is also worried about feminism which he blames for spiking divorce rates.

'the reason why there's so much divorce is that feminism promotes independence in women. i'm very happy for women to find greater independence but when you go too far in that direction then who's at home?" he asked.

in an interview with afp gray said widespread feminism in america holds back sales of his books here while other parts of the world — he cited australia and latin america notably — are more in tune with his basic message.

men and women come from different planets and the two sexes should stop trying to behave similarly and embrace their own natural personalities according to gray. 'the most resistance i get to my message is in america. wherever feminism has a strong hold there's resistance to the idea that men and women are different" he said.



'when you go to australia for example there's a very clear knowledge that men and women are different."

gray also cited latin american countries as places where 'they love my books."

in europe he said his biggest fans are in france.

'i think it's because france is a romantic country the language is more romantic people care more about relationships" gray said.

the 62-year-old — who says he has saved 'at least" hundreds of thousands of marriages over the last two decades — meanwhile was ambivalent about the impact of technology on relationships.

being able to meet people easily online has its pluses he said citing notably the number of divorced people in their 40s and 50s who seek out former friends and partners from their younger days.
