Relationship educators offer their book Loving In The Grown Zone as a “lovers manual”on avoiding “relationship wrecks” in the pursuit of healthy romantic partnerships.

(Black PR Wire) Verona, NJ, May 1, 2017 –Citing consequences ranging from divorce and intimate partner violence to damage done to finances, businesses and careers, Grown Zone Relationship Education Co-Creators Zara D. Green and Alfred Edmond Jr. are escalating their campaign against “stupidity in the name of love.” In addition to live events, online training programs and private coaching at, the power couple offers their book, 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) as a solution for those looking to avoid the “relationships wrecks” that can place their sexual health, financial security, emotional health and physical safety at risk.

According to the husband-and-wife team, the cost of a single failed-marriage cycle (from engagement through divorce) can easily exceed $100,000. In addition, according to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, 98 percent of domestic abuse cases include some form of financial abuse.

“When you add the financial costs to the emotional damage to individuals and social consequences to our communities, and especially our children,” says Edmond, “it is clear that there is far more at stake with our romantic choices than broken hearts and hurt feelings. Loving In The Grown Zone is the book for those who believe as we do, that we can and must do better.”

“Too many people accept that dissatisfaction, neglect, infidelity, abuse, disrespect, conflict, exploitation and betrayal are natural, normal and unavoidable outcomes ofromantic relationships, and certainly of marriage,” says Green. “Our work is a rejection of that thinking. It is testament to our belief that while there may be no such thing as a perfect relationship, that is not justification for accepting anything less than healthy relationships.”

Subjects addressed in Loving In The Grown Zone include:

  • 3 Reasons We Commit To Love That Won’t Last
  • 3 Ways To Treat Break-Ups As Acts of Love
  • 4 Popular Relationship Fixes That Never Work
  • Stop Financial Foolery In The Name of Love

“You had a driver’s manual to help you learn how to drive safely,” says Edmond. “Loving In The Grown Zone is the manual to help you learn how to love safely, by providing a framework for safe and healthy decision-making when it comes to dating, sex and relationships.”
