There is no such thing as a perfect relationship.

This is a fact. However, it is too often stated to infer something that is not true: It is impossible--and therefore unreasonable to expect--to create, nurture and sustain a healthy, consistently loving relationship.

As a result, too many people accept that dissatisfaction, neglect, infidelity, abuse, disrespect, conflict, exploitation and betrayal are natural, normal and unavoidable characteristics of romantic relationships, and certainly of marriage. We are presented with a choice: Relationships that don't last, and relationships that do, as long as participants are willing to endure inevitable suffering, mistreatment and victimization, usually at the hands of one another.

That's why Long Branch High School alum Alfred A. Edmond Jr. has co-authored, with Zara D. Green, Loving in the Grown Zone: A No-Nonsense Guide to Making Healthy Decisions in the Quest for Loving, Romantic Relationships of Honor, Esteem and Respect (Balboa Press). Their new book is testament to their belief that while there may be no such thing as a perfect relationship, that is not justification for accepting anything less than healthy relationships. No one, say the authors, is required to accept mistreatment as the price of a loving, safe and sustainable relationship of honor, esteem, respect. Furthermore, Edmond and Green assert that establishing such healthy, loving, resilient relationships are not a matter of luck or chance, but of intention, learnable skills and practices, and commitment to personal growth.

The book challenges readers to believe that you can have--and are indeed entitled to--joyful, secure, healthy relationships of fulfilling and lasting love, with no strings attached and no suffering required. Indeed, such relationships are your inheritance, what you were born to and created for.
