STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Having trouble in your relationship? Author Arielle Ford could have the answer.

Ford is the author of “Wabi Sabi Love: The Ancient Art of Finding Perfect Love in Imperfect Relationships” and visited the KCAL9 studios Friday to talk about her book.

After joyous beginnings, many couples find their dreams of perfect love replaced by frustration, criticism, defensiveness and emotional distance. Yet the key to enduring love lies not in chasing an ideal, says bestselling author and love expert Ford. Lasting love requires we embrace the very flaws, quirks and differences that make us unique, as she shows in her new book Wabi Sabi (HarperCollins).

Wabi Sabi is the ancient Japanese aesthetic of finding beauty and perfection in imperfection. When applied to love, it means changing how we view our partners. We were all raised with many misbegotten myths about “happily ever after” only to discover that our princess or knight in shining armor arrived with some serious baggage and dents.

For more information on the book or author, visit Wabi Sabi online.
