YES You Can!

Do it with
The Beginner’s Guide to Your
Brilliant Badass Marriage.

The Beginners Guide to Your Brilliant Badass Marriage is a series of seven modules, each one designed to give engaged and soon-to-be engaged couples (and you single-and-looking women and men) a practical marriage alternative to the conventional tried-but-not-so-true traditional marriage.

If you don’t like what you see happening in traditional marriage, and you want something better and different, you need to try the Five-Year Marriage®. It’s unconventional to be sure, but it’s practical.

I know! I’m Annmarie Kelly
and I’ve been using this system for over 30 years,
and through 6 marriages!

Each marriage was with the same partner (Joseph) – yet – because life changed and we changed – each marriage has been very different! We are now in our 7th marriage and life keeps throwing major changes at us! But we stay connected and on track by using The Five-Year Marriage® system.

It’s the better way to do “I Do”!

If you’re like me, thinking about marriage makes you nervous about divorce, about losing your personal identity, about getting stuck in a dead relationship. Let’s get outside the traditional marriage box for something better than the other marriages you’ve seen – including your own parents’.

But how do you escape the pitfalls of traditional marriage if you have no clear idea what marriage means to you and what it means to your partner?

The Beginners Guide to Your Badass Marriage will show you how!

The marriage you’ve always wanted starts here by laying a strong foundation for your future together.

How do you make the magic happen?

I’ll teach you exactly how to do that in The Beginners Guide to Your Brilliant Badass Marriage.
