Dr. Joshua Coleman is a caring psychologist who nonetheless isn't afraid to tell the truth: not all marriages can be joyful at all times, but that isn't a cause for divorce, especially with children involved.

Even if your marriage is never going to be the one you dreamed of, you can still live happily ever after. Dr. Coleman provides wise and compassionate advice on becoming a happy person in an unhappy situation.

In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Coleman also teaches readers how to:

- Reduce out-of-control conflict in the home
- Let go of the fairy-tale marriage ideal and create a better reality
- Accept change in your partner and make peace with what you can't change
- Maintain domestic harmony in times of crisis

Unhappy husbands and wives finally have an alternative to the devastation of divorce. And by maintaining imperfect harmony, each parent has the opportunity to love, to care for, and to teach his or her children "full-time."

Praise for Imperfect Harmony

"This is a radical book. It challenges some of the most dearly held American beliefs about marriage and long term relationships. It challenges adults to examine themselves and their marriages for ways to change in order to remain good parents and viable family units for their children. It assumes, in a matter of fact, professional and upbeat manner that it's desirable and possible to overcome and learn to live with serious relational problems that most in our modern culture would consider grounds for separation and divorce. And it offers the astounding idea that having a marriage characterized by such 'imperfect harmony' can be part of a satisfying, happy life."
-From the foreword by Julia Lewis, co-author of The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce
