And never a word was spoken,
While he ripp'd the doublet, and tore the lace,
And tugg'd — by the self-same token, —
And strain'd, till he wrench'd it out of its place,
The dagger-blade that was broken.
"Fauconshawe" by Adam Lindsay Gordon

These models maintain the main successes of simple-group GUTs but permit simple solutions to the doublet-triplet splitting problem.
Product Groups, Discrete Symmetries, and Grand Unification
Discrete symmetries can also lead to doublet-triplet splitting.
Product Groups, Discrete Symmetries, and Grand Unification
Below the GUT scale, a combination of this symmetry and the GUT symmetry remains unbroken and forbids the doublet mass.
Product Groups, Discrete Symmetries, and Grand Unification
If the GUT group is simple, a discrete symmetry cannot distinguish between the triplet and doublet mass term.
Product Groups, Discrete Symmetries, and Grand Unification
In a semi-simple GUT however, with Higgses transforming under different group factors, the doublet mass term and triplet mass term can have different charges under the unbroken discrete symmetry.
Product Groups, Discrete Symmetries, and Grand Unification

N even.) This unbroken symmetry distinguishes between the Higgs doublets and triplets.

Thus, the doublet mass term can be forbidden while the triplet mass term is allowed.
Product Groups, Discrete Symmetries, and Grand Unification
The unbroken discrete symmetry further forbids mass terms for all Higgs doublets.
Product Groups, Discrete Symmetries, and Grand Unification

Product Groups, Discrete Symmetries, and Grand Unification
Then, in order to have masses of order MGUT , the doublets that couple to SH must be charged under the same SU (5), and the Higgs doublets are charged under the second SU (5).
