Let's be honest. No marriage is perfect. Marriage takes work from both spouses to achieve a solid, fulfilled and respectfully loving relationship. We often come to married life with a long list of expectations and sometimes even some baggage. Just plowing along can lead to serious problems if needs and expectations are not meet or maybe are impossible goals.
In No More Perfect Marriages: Experience the Freedom of Being Real Together, spouses and authors, Mark and Jill Savage share many tools and tips to protect and strengthen your marriage. They share personal experiences with friendly and sometimes humorous voices on how they've grown and healed through tough times. I like how we get both sides to the story because often times we only hear one spouses side. They explain something they call the "slow fades" which I think is pivotal to their philosophies and has been eye opening to learn about. I think many of us experience these slow fades and getting a reminder about them is a sure way to work on those areas. My personal theme for this year is being authentic and this book felt very real to me. From the pages I saw a couple that loved each other and had learned to safe-guard their marriage. If you have had any infidelity in your relationship this book takes a real look at that and the couple shares how they were able to heal and rekindle their relationship.
About No More Perfect Marriages
Do you ever feel like the spark is gone? Like a critical spirit has invaded your marriage? Like you want more intimacy, but something is in the way? You could be suffering from the Perfection Infection. The Perfection Infection happens when we cultivate unrealistic expectations of ourselves and our spouse, gradually leading to intimacy-killing behavior, also known as the “Seven Slow Fades.” That was the case for Jill and Mark Savage, and it eventually led to infidelity. In No More Perfect Marriages, the Savages share their story, help guide couples through the challenges of marriage and intimacy-building, and reveal that hurting marriages can heal and good marriages can become great.
