The Five-Year Marriage: Making Your Marriage A Priority

couple reconnecting after fighting

The Five-Year Marriage Helps Engaged Couples Learn To Prioritize Their Marriage 

Many people today have mixed opinions about marriage. Many are aware of the high divorce rates in our country and rightfully worry that marriages won’t last. At the same time, many of those people also want to get married. Couples who are considering marriage have to ask themselves – is marriage worth it? How can we make our marriage different? How can our marriage last? I’m Annemarie Kelly, and in my book The Five-Year Marriage: Shifting the Marriage ParadigmI offer an alternative take on marriage. The Five-Year Marriage is the plan my husband and I have followed for our 30+ years together, and it can work for you too. 

What Is A Five-Year Marriage? 

In its simplest terms, a five-year marriage is just what it says on the tin. It’s marriage wherein you and your partner commit not ‘til death do you part, but just for a length of five years. Below that surface level, though, many couples find that the five-year marriage offers them an amount of control and freedom in their marriage that makes for a longer-lasting, more committed relationship than they might have accomplished through traditional marriage.  

Learn To Make Your Marriage A Priority 

The five-year marriage commitment forces married couples to rely on working together through their marriage rather than assuming it will work out on its own. Together, you and your partner draft a contract for your five-year marriage. You decide what your goals are, how you will accomplish those goals, and what expectations you both have for your five-year marriage. You have to commit to working together and prioritizing your marriage in your daily lives. Learn more about how this arrangement could work for you when you read The Five-Year Marriage

Are you Putting Off Your Midlife Reinvention?

Does Your Reinvention Feel Stalled?

MidLife Reinvention
Is your MidLife Reinvention stuck?

Does your midlife reinvention feel stuck someplace? Is there something holding you back from taking that next step to getting a fresh start in your personal life or your career? You might be surprised to find the problem – or the “glitch” – could be a something small. Or maybe it’s not a glitch but a piling up of a bunch of small things.

Little Tasks can Overwhelm You and Stall Your Goals

Here’s my story: Last week I got two things done that I’d been putting off.  Two things doesn’t sound like a lot, does it? Not only was it just two things, but neither one was a big deal. In fact, I’d call both of them mildly important and neither one had a real deadline – so, frankly, I wasn’t overly motivated.  The first one required resending a Christmas card. I sent it in mid-December but put the wrong address on it. It came back a few weeks later. I could easily have just forgotten about it, but I always send Christmas cards – it’s sort of my holiday “thing” instead of doing gifts. Also, by the time it came back, I had news for the recipients, so I wanted to add an extra note. So I put it in “my pile” – the stuff I’m going to get to doing at some point.

The other task was cancelling a subscription. I delayed cancelling it because only part of me wanted to cancel. I could have let the subscription ride and cancelled it next year. But doing either made me feel bad. So it, too, ended up in “my pile” of to-do stuff.

A week went by…then two…tree… And I just wasn’t getting them done.

Have Your Midlife Reinvention Plans Stalled? Are You Feeling Stuck?

You know…you aren’t sure what to do, so you do nothing …but then can’t get away from it, so it’s always on your mind? Somehow doing nothing weighs on your mind. It’s like they nag at you…making you feel like a slug and putting a guilt-shadow over your whole mind.

That was me. In the month I delayed taking action, those two little thing nagged at me. Every time I went through the pile, I saw them…and put them back…always with a feeling like I was screwing something and disappointing someone (me!) and, of course, that made me feel bad.  Every time I did it I felt a twinge of something – indecisiveness…guilt…something that didn’t feel good.

Reinvention Solution: Block Out Time for the “Little” Tasks

One day I got so annoyed that I blocked off an hour in my daytime to do it (yes, really…it just took an hour).  First I made the phone call. I was half-hoping that person on the other end would have talked me out of it, but he didn’t. So it got cancelled. Done!

Next I typed up a short note, cut it to fit flat in the card, signed it, found another envelope, put them together, and sealed it. Took me about 30 minutes. I put the letter in the mail pile. It would go out in the next day’s mail.

Whew! Those two little things that nagged at me for over a month were finally done. Yayyy!

What Happened Next is the “Big Secret” to Achieving Your Midlife Reinvention

Once both things were done, I went back to work. What surprised me was how different I felt – like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Or like I could breathe some wonderful fresh air for the first time. I noticed that felt more relaxed.  I found it kind of amusing…until I started to getting some good ideas for a project I was working on – ideas that simply hadn’t been coming, no matter how hard I tried to inspire my creativity.

Then  I remembered…

Little Tasks Weigh on our Minds, Stifling our Creativity & Motivation

A while back I learned about something called the “Clean Sweep” program. I did it while I was in coach training class.  It’s an old, but tried and true method developed by the late Thomas Leonard for [what was then] CoachU.  The idea behind the Clean Sweep  is “that by strengthening the accompanying 100 items in your life, you will reduce stress, increase your energy, and attract better people and opportunities into your life.” When I used it regularly, I got more done , more easily, with less stress. That was because all the little nagging things weren’t slowing me down or holding me back.

What’s Hanging Over You?

“I’m going to [lost weight, start exercising, go back to school, start my business, return to teaching, get a divorce, or whatever] – as soon as I [get through the holidays, when winter is over, organize my files, catalog my crafts/writing/courses, get enough money, find the right school, digitize my pictures]. Then you don’t. Every day or week or month, and every time you feel down or read about someone who is doing what you want to do, it nags at you. It’s lowers your energy level, zaps your creativity, and pushes you in front of the TV for some mindless viewing.

Do You Need a Clean Sweep to Get Your Midlife Reinvention Back on Track?

Give this a try, it can’t hurt and you might just find it really helpful! Here’s what to do:

  1. Set a goal for yourself – something related to your reinvention
  2. Do the Clean Sweep and input your scores.
  3. Decide how often you’ll repeat the Clean Sweep. Once a month for the 1st 3 months is good. You can lengthen or shorten the space depending on what you need.
  4. Pick a couple things to get started with and do them.
  5. Notice what happens – mentally, emotionally, physically.
  6. Keep track – file your clean sweeps, keep a journal, or get an accountability partner.

Should A Marriage Be A ‘Forever’ Agreement?

rebuild intimacy in your marriage

Are You Really Ready For ‘Forever’? Marriage Advice For Engaged Couples 

Engaged couples, if the ‘forever’ aspect of marriage makes you feel uneasy, you aren’t alone. Forever is a long time – longer than any one person can truly comprehend. What if you could get married without ‘forever’ hanging over your head? My name is Annmarie Kelly, and I’d like to introduce you to the idea of The Five-Year Marriage®. Through The Five-Year Marriage®, I’ve been with my husband for 30+ years, each time agreeing to be married for 5 years. You can learn more about this type of marriage in The Five-Year Marriage: Shifting the Marriage Paradigm. 

Why Is Marriage Supposed To Be Forever? 

Traditionally, marriage is said to last “‘til death do you part.” Why? 

Well, historically speaking, the “til death” period wasn’t all that long. For example, in the early 1900s men got married around the age of 25. Life expectancy for men was around 46 years of age. So, a marriage would last around 20 years.  

Today, the “til death” period is much, much longer. Life expectancy has changed drastically, and a couple marrying in their 20s could easily expect to live until their 80s or later! That’s 60 years total together. Nothing stays the same over the course of sixty years – not people, and not the world they live in. 

“Forever” Marriage Encourages Couples To Take Their Relationship For Granted 

Because marriages as “supposed” to last forever, couples rarely actually plan for how to make a marriage work. Married couples often assume it’ll just happen. They love each other and it should just work out because of that love, right? 

Unfortunately, relationships don’t work that way. Relationships take work, communication, and a willingness by both parties to stick to their plans together. That is what The Five-Year Marriage® encourages couples to work for. In your five-year marriage, you and your partner decide together what you expect out of your five-year commitment. You can’t take for granted that you’ll stay together forever because your contact with each other lasts only 5 years. It forces both parties to put the work necessary into making the relationship thrive. If you’re ready to learn how to do that, read The Five-Year Marriage with your partner.

Can You Fall in Love Again?

valentines tips for single's and couples

Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s that time of year for…chocolate! And, oh yes, for celebrating love. Frankly, not everyone in a relationship is happy about doing it. Covid confinement has been rough on many relationships. Last year a woman said to me, “I just can’t look at his face anymore” and recently a woman told me she let her sweetie know, about sex, “I’m done with that.” Neither of those is conducive to cuddling and love talk. However, most likely that’s NOT you, so you have options.

Valentine’s Day Tips for Couples

Even if you and your sweetie have been together for a while, with a little planning, Valentine’s Day can open up a whole new set of possibilities. Here are some suggestions that could help you “feel the love” this Valentine’s Day:

1. Have a Plan!

You and your sweetie have a couple of days, so talk about it together. What do you want to do? Sometimes starting with “if time/money/kids weren’t an issue, how would we spend the day?” Sometimes just talking about that is fun. And maybe it will jog some ideas in your head. Also, the anticipation of something special – for now or for the future – lifts your spirits.

Here are a few practical ideas:

  • …Plan for takeout or to cook a special meal together
  • …Get some hearty appetizers that you can cook at home and plan an appetizer-only extended Happy Hour (instead of dinner)
  • …Is there a special movie that gets you in the mood for romance? A favorite for me is Somewhere in Time. I have it on DVD but I’m pretty sure it’s on Netflix
  • …What about going through old pictures together…of vacations or special trips. Going back over those old memories of your good times together is like greasing the engine of your car – it minimizes friction and allows things to flow more smoothly between you.
  • …Do you need a sitter? Get one for just an hour or two. Then take a long drive together to someplace where you can stop and watch the sunset – but first stop for hot chocolate at the convenience store (Philly locals know Wawa has the best – unless you make your own).

2. Be NICE!

When you’re together a long time, it’s easy to forget to be polite and appreciative. Being treated with respect and getting a thankyou from time-to-time is something everyone wants – and you and your partner are no exception. One woman told me that she started to notice the things her sweetie was doing. They were little niceties that he always did – like making her a cup of tea at night. She realized that she’d gotten so used to those things that she stopped thanking him. One night, as he put her tea on the end table next to her, she looked him in the eyes and said, “You know, I don’t always say it but I appreciate it when you make me tea at night – and it’s how I like it. That makes me feel special.” She said the look on his face almost brought tears to her eyes. When she realized that tiny little courtesy made him feel so good, she started looking for other things. It took him a few weeeks, but eventually he starated doing the same. Those little things reingivorated her marriage!

So…when you’re making your plan, include an agreement to say please, thankyou, excuse me – even if you agree together to focus on being nice just for the day. And don’t forget to add and “I love you” once in a while too!

3. Share a Soft Touch

A soft touch from a loved one can be like gold! Remember when you were “new” together and s/he would brush the hair off your face and you liked it so much? Or how just holding hands made you feel good?

Something as simple as stroking your hand or face, rubbing his/her shoulders, a long hug, or a snuggle in bed – are the small things that say “I still love you.” Soft touches can be both soothing and healing. No, it doesn’t have to lead to sex (unless you want it to happen). 

When was the last time you two held hands?

Making Valentine’s Day special doesn’t need to be elaborate or expensive or over-the-top crazy. In fact, the longer you two are together, the less all those “externals” matter. What most people want in marriage is the love and respect that results in true intimacy – emotional intimacy. That’s how you can fall in love all over again.

You can choose to let love be all around you this weekend. So go for it…and enjoy!

With love  and in victory,
Annmarie

Why Do People Get Married?

The Five-Year Marriage Gives Couples A Fresh Perspective On Marriage 

Marriage isn’t something that should be taken for granted, and yet, all too often couples get wrapped up in planning for a wedding without planning for the marriage to follow. If you want to invest time and energy into making sure you have a successful marriage and not just a successful wedding day, consider The Five-Year Marriage: Shifting the Marriage ParadigmMy name is Annemarie KellyThe Five-Year Marriage began as a plan between my husband and me when he proposed to me and I wasn’t comfortable with the idea of a ‘forever’ marriage. 30+ years later, we’re still taking our marriage together five years at a time – and you can do the same. 

Why Do People Get Married? 

Historically, marriage was a necessity for many. It was a way to ensure one’s lineage. For women, it was an acceptable path to financial security. Today, marriage isn’t a necessity in the ways it once was. If it’s not necessary to get married, though, why do people want to get married? 

There are many reasons why one could want to get married, including finances and/or children. For some, marriage is about wanting to be wanted or a desire for intimacy. For others, marriage is a mark of maturity or a sign of their personal success. Those reasons alone, however, are not enough to ensure that a marriage can last. 

What Makes For A Lasting Marriage? 

The Five-Year Marriage isn’t about making a short commitment and then parting ways after. Rather, The Five-Year Marriage is an approach to marriage that doesn’t take your union as a couple for granted. It’s a plan that encourages married couples to renew their commitments, accommodate and acknowledge change, and make decisions that are based on who you are now rather than who you were in the past. The Five-Year Marriage allows both partners in a married couple room for growth – and that is one of the things that can make a marriage last.

“Old School” Marriage Vs. The Five-Year Marriage®

senior couple prevents gray divorce

Engaged Couples Find Unique Advice For Marriage Plans In The Five-Year Marriage® 

There comes a time in many long-term relationships when a couple asks themselves – is marriage for us? Couples who find themselves questioning the idea of marriage can gain a fresh new perspective on what marriage could be through The Five-Year Marriage: Shifting the Marriage Paradigm. I’m Annemarie Kelly, and The Five-Year Marriage is the approach to marriage my husband and I have taken together for the past 30+ years. Each marriage lasts for only 5 years and begins with a contract – an agreement about our personal and joint goals, and how we can accomplish those goals over the course of our marriage. If you and your partner are committed to making your marriage succeed through working together rather than just assuming things will work out, The Five Year Marriage® could be for you. 

Old School Marriage For Old School Reasons 

The purpose of marriage and people’s reasons for marrying have, in some ways, changed throughout history. In some ways, expectations remain the same. For women of the past, marriage was often a ‘must.’ It’s easy to forget that it’s only a relatively recent development that women are able to achieve financial stability on their own. Not only were women not allowed to hold jobs for a long time, but women also had trouble opening bank accounts or lines of credit in their own names. For many women, marriage was a way of survival. Additionally, marriage was how men could ensure a legitimate continuation of their lineage.  

Of course, many people today still choose to get married for these very reasons – financial security and for the sake of having children. The main difference is that it is widely acknowledged these days that marriage is not the only socially acceptable path to those things. Additionally, people can get married for other reasons – including just a desire to be committed to your partner.  

Ask yourself: If the reasons people get married, and the necessity of marriage in relation to one’s survival, can change so much over time – why can’t the way we get married change as well? 

I’m here to tell you that it can. Modern marriage shouldn’t be shackled by old school expectations. Your marriage should suit you and your partner as a couple. The Five Year Marriage® allows you to tailor your marriage to fit your relationship, goals, and expectations – and it allows you to decide to do that again (or not) regularly. Engaged and married couples alike can benefit from the perspective offered in The Five-Year Marriage. Get your copy today and learn if The Five-Year Marriage® is for you!

A Marriage Plan With Room For Growth And Change

Starting over, midlife transformation after 40

Engaged Couples: Consider The Five-Year Marriage’s Marriage Advice 

For couples who are considering marriage and newlyweds looking for marriage advice, consider reading Annmarie Kelly’s The Five-Year Marriage: Shifting the Marriage ParadigmThis unique approach to marriage is a game-changer for couples who want to leave room for growth and change in their relationship. The Five-Year Marriage has allowed Annmarie Kelly and her husband to experience growth alongside one another as a couple for the last 30 years by taking it just five years at a time. Now you can do the same! 

Tips For Newlyweds: Expect Change And Allow Growth 

Nothing and no one ever remains the same, which is why, for many people, a ‘til death marriage can seem so intimidating. The truth is, that the ‘til death idea of marriage is outdated. While it might have made sense about 100 years ago when life expectancy was much lower and you could expect to be dead by 50 or 60, it doesn’t make much sense now. 

The Five-Year Marriage is a marriage that allows – and expects – changes. Every five years, you and your partner approach your marriage with fresh eyes. You have the opportunity to rethink your relationship and consider your priorities. This plan allows you and your partner the room to grow and become your best selves together while experience safety, love, and mutual respect and trust. 

The Five-Year Marriage is the key to marrying your partner with clear expectations, understanding, and respect for one another. It is perhaps the most useful piece of advice for marriage that newlyweds or couples considering marriage. Don’t feel stuck in your marriage by succumbing to the pressure to do things the way they’ve always been done. Choose the marriage style that allows both you and your partner a level of independence and safety that will encourage you to feel closer and more intimate.

The Five-Year Marriage: Marriage Advice For New Couples

How Can You Know If Marriage Is Really For You? 

If you’ve ever wondered if marriage is “for you,” you’re not alone. Making a marriage work is no easy task and, unfortunately, it’s something that many couples fail to accomplish. What if there were a more adaptive way to approach marriage? What if being married didn’t mean making the commitment all at once to be together ‘til death do you part? Annmarie Kelly’s The Five-Year Marriage plan could be for you! New couples, – you can learn about how The Five-Year Marriage could be the best marriage advice you’ve ever received. 

Marriage Advice That Shifts The Marriage Paradigm 

If traditional marriage makes you feel uneasy or if you worry that marriage could lead to feeling “stuck forever,” The Five-Year Marriage could be just what you need. Women especially may be worried about feeling stuck in a marriage that takes a turn for the worse. Historically, women have had very little choice in how and if they marry and if they could leave that marriage. 

The Five-Year Marriage Promotes Equal Partnership 

By following the plan of The Five-Year Marriage, married couples allow themselves to reconsider and renegotiate the terms of their marriage every five years. This renegotiation acknowledges the changes that have happened in the previous five years. By acknowledging and making room for growth in this way, married couples can enjoy an equal partnership with true intimacy. Annmarie Kelly herself has used this method to build a long-lasting relationship with her husband of 30+ years. They’ve taken the last 3 decades on together just five years at a time – and now so can you!

The Best Marriage Advice For Newlyweds

rebuild intimacy in your marriage

 Not Ready For a ‘Til death Commitment? 

When something is a long-standing tradition, you may feel as if it is the “only” way to do something. Like, for example, marriage. The societal norm now is for married couples to make a forever commitment to each other – ‘til death do they part. What if you’re not ready for that? What if that sort of commitment doesn’t fit your needs or your partner’s needs? Then The Five-Year Marriage plan can help you. Annmarie Kelly developed the idea for The Five-Year Marriage after she realized that traditional marriage was not be for her. Now, she and many other married couples have found the tools they need to remain happy in their marital relationship. 

The Five-Year Marriage: The Better “I DO” For Newlyweds 

Entering into a marriage is a big commitment – one that very few couples are prepared to make. Everyone knows how to get married but we’re often not taught much about how to be married. For women especially, marriage is so expected that we aren’t afforded to opportunity to consider if it’s the lifestyle that is best for us. 

If you’re a newlywed looking for marriage advice, or if you’re in a committed relationship who just isn’t certain if this “til death do us part” arrangement is right for you – consider reading Annmarie Kelly’s The Five-Year Marriage: Shifting the Marriage Paradigm. This book can give you perspective on exactly what it is about the traditional forever-agreement of marriage that doesn’t sit quite right with you, and then it offers you the alternative you may be looking for. 

Annmarie’s Great Advice For Newlyweds: Take It Five Years At A Time 

The Five-Year Marriage plan encourages you to take your marriage five years at a time. It doesn’t mean that after five years you and your partner are done. Rather, it affords you both the opportunity to acknowledge the changes and growth that has happened in your lives and how those things affect your marriage. Even as newlyweds, most people know that a lot can change in five years. The Five-Year Marriage plan allows you to rethink, refresh, and make room for new changes and new growth in the years to come. Read more in Annmarie’s The Five-Year Marriage book, and learn how you can take your marriage five years at a time.
