If 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 In No More Perfect Marriages 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:
- How the Perfection Infection invades a marriage—even a good marriage
- How to detect and correct the Seven Slow Fades
- How to set and communicate realistic expectations
- What to do if your spouse just won’t change
- How to guard your marriage from the Perfection Infection for good

What People Are Saying About No More Perfect Marriages:
I don’t especially like reading marriage books. I’m not really sure why. Maybe because my husband of 40+ years doesn’t read them with me. But Mark and Jill’s book grabbed me from the first chapter! It is very practical, yet doesn’t offer 1-2-3 easy fixes! I was so excited about it, my husband started reading it, liked it and plans to read it all! That is a first! –Becky Glenn, Married 40+ years to Dave
No More Perfect Marriages helped me see and identify the differences between my husband and me. I had to confront and challenge my belief that I was right and my husband was wrong about how we approach life. This book helped me to better understand my husband, and it gave me the tools to help deal with those differences. It really changed my outlook on marriage. – Julie Frisch
In their candid, down-to-earth style, Mark and Jill share from personal experience lessons they have learned and insights they have gained from their marriage. This book can help any couple in any stage of marriage build a better relationship. The content is so relatable because of the “Jill says” and “Mark says” style it was written in. We wish this book had been written before we got married! - Scott and Bonnie Miller, married 37 years and still learning about each other
