“Many people say you can fix a broken marriage, but Mark and Jill show you how.” — Dr. Juli Slattery, psychologist, author, and president of Authentic Intimacy
No marriage is perfect. But every marriage can get better.
Do you 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 they speak honestly about their struggles, how they came back from betrayal, and the principles keeping their marriage strong today. They guide you in everything you need to know to kick the Perfection Infection right out and return to intimacy.
In their warm, honest, personable style, Jill and Mark discuss:
Hurting marriages can heal, and good marriages can become great. It takes work, yes, but No More Perfect Marriages will give you the insights, language, and roadmap you need for the journey. So start today.

In the book, "No More Perfect Marriages", Mark and Jill Savage share practical and Biblical strategies for an honest and healthy marriage. They speak both from their own firsthand experiences and their years of counseling other couples, providing couples with reflection and discussion questions at the end of each chapter. I found this book extremely helpful for thinking through my own marriage and in counseling the couples we minister to.
This book looks at the reasons behind why we put up walls in our marriages and helps couples to see how differences are not meant to divide but to be celebrated, and that God is not interested in compatibility, he is interested in sacrificial love. This book is a practical and helpful book for every married couple who is looking for realistic and helpful ways to strengthen their marriage.
No More Perfect Marriages was an interesting read. I thought the advice in this book was very practical and not something that you read in every marriage book. I loved Mark and Jill's honest willingness to share what they have learned from their marriage.
One of the lessons taught in this book is that some of us are external processors and some of us are internal processors. I definitely am an internal processor, and my husband is an external processor. I sometimes don't understand him. They talked in this book about how sometimes we may view the external processor as wishy washy. I had thought that recently, but it isn't the case just my husband's way of processing things. Definitely not mine! Neither is right or wrong, jut different.
