Meet Jason & Debby Coleman.

They were married September 30, 1989 at a very young age (Debby turned 19 on their honeymoon – Jason was 21). They dated for several years and had what they like to describe as a “fairy-tale wedding” and expected to “live happily-ever-after.”

However, reality struck immediately. Jason spent an inordinate amount of time at work and Debby sat at home, alone, far too often. Within the first several months of this storybook wedding, disaster struck. Before she knew it, Debby was involved in an affair. It lasted for several weeks, until Jason discovered the secret life she was living.

As they tried to piece their shattered lives back together and Jason was fighting hard to understand forgiveness, he was struck with a potential life-threatening injury that put him in the hospital. His right lung had collapsed.

The reality of becoming a divorcee, and possibly a widow, at the young age of 19 hit Debby hard. She decided that she wanted to be married; she did want a life with her husband, and for the next several months they diligently tried to repair their marriage.

After a couple of years of trying to recover on their own and nearly ending up in divorce court, they began marriage counseling and learned how to communicate with one another and how to truly love one another unconditionally.

Today their marriage is amazing. Couples are naturally drawn to them as others try to discover the “secret” of their happiness. In response, Jason and Debby have written a book “Discovering Your Amazing Marriage,” which was released in June 2010.

They have an amazing story of tragedy turned triumph, of rising from the ashes, and are an inspiration for couples going through the throes of potential divorce.  They would love to share their story with you of how they overcame the immense challenges!
