The former "Different Strokes" star described his marriage to Shannon Price as his first "romantic relationship."
"I never got the opportunity to be romantic or feel romantic with anyone … I wasn't saving myself, she just happened to be the one," said the 4-foot-8 actor.
Price, who is nearly a foot taller, said their height difference was never an issue.
"He was 10-feet-tall to me because he was sweet and I really liked his personality," she said, adding she wanted to keep the marriage a secret to maintain her own identity.
That said, Price also admitted the relationship is "off and on."
"We may go a week and not speak to each other, but that's because you're thinking and mulling things over," Coleman said.
"He lets his anger conquer him sometimes, I don't like the violence," Price added. "He throws things around, and sometimes he throws it in my direction … He's got to damage something before his anger stops."
She also said she has called the police on several occasions.
"It's not a picnic, dude," Coleman said of marriage.
