The Five-Year Marriage® Book Review by Doreen McGettigan

“I was definitely intrigued by the concept of The Five-Year Marriage®. Being happily married for more than ten-years I doubted there was anything in this book I didn’t know. Not only was I wrong I was inspired to start numerous conversations with my husband about where we’ve been and where we want to go.

Packed with thoughtful yet expert advice Annmarie has definitely earned her nickname The Mother of Modern Marriage.

I especially enjoyed Joseph’s Take, where Annmarie’s six-time husband shares his insight and personal stories throughout the book.

The Five-Year-Marriage® is not a guide to getting out of marriage. It’s a guide to building a solid foundation, resolving conflicts and learning to fight fairly. We all change, some of us for the better and some for worse. Renegotiating your wants, needs and desires with your spouse every five-years is a brilliant way to steer your marriage solidly into the future five-years at a time.

This book should be mandatory reading for every engaged couple, and will inspire you to reconnect on a more intimate level with your partner if you are married.”

Five Year-Marriage® Book Reviews

I was definitely intrigued by the concept of The Five Year Marriage. Being happily married for more than ten-years I doubted there was anything in this book I didn’t know. Not only was I wrong I was inspired to start numerous conversations with my husband about where we’ve been and where we want to go.

Packed with thoughtful yet expert advice Annmarie has definitely earned her nickname The Mother of Modern Marriage.

I especially enjoyed Joseph’s Take, where Annmarie’s six-time husband shares his insight and personal stories throughout the book.

The Five-Year-Marriage is not a guide to getting out of marriage. It’s a guide to building a solid foundation, resolving conflicts and learning to fight fairly. We all change, some of us for the better and some for worse. Renegotiating your wants, needs and desires with your spouse every five-years is a brilliant way to steer your marriage solidly into the future five-years at a time

Doreen M. McGettigan
If you are thinking about marriage, engaged, already married, or single…The Five Year Marriage is a book you must read! It is clear, it is prescriptive, it will aid in anyone’s life situation.

aplustruck
This book has excellent advice for all types of couples. As years pass, people change and so do goals. This book provides a great outline for structuring conversations between partners to ensure both are getting what they need in their relationship and in life, even as those things change through the years.

Jason
Annmarie Kelly has written a ground-breaking book that looks at marriage from a brand new assumption: “What if we don’t assume it’s forever?” This shift opens the boundaries in couple relationships and allows for the creation of a more conscious commitment based on honoring each person’s individual desires and dreams while keeping the relationship itself fresh. We as humans are always growing and evolving, and the 5-year marriage contract helps ensure that our relationships will continue to grow and mature with us.

Annmarie helps personalize and bring credibility to this idea because she and her husband have been living the 5-year marriage for 30 years together. Her own sharing of personal stories and real examples, as well as the comments at the end of each chapter giving her husband’s perspective, really helps show the practical challenges and benefits. I feel this book is just as valuable for people who have been married for a long time as it most definitely is for anyone considering marriage who is interested in keeping their relationship alive and evolving.

Wendy S  Mackowski

Victorious Woman Book Reviews

If you’re like me, you’ve struggled with what Annmarie describes as the “good girl” syndrome, doing what others expect of you, for their approval, and putting aside what you want and watching a part of you die inside. Like Annmarie, maybe this will be the catalyst that helps break you from that desire to please everyone all the time and learn to be true to yourself.

DA Bale
This new book…will give hope to other women who need to know that they can do it…with patience, persistence, prayer and a whole lot of courage.
Azriela Jaffe, Harrisburg Patriot-News
The feelings leapt off the pages as I remembered my own experiences and how I was able to rally and come alive again. Thank you for the inspiration to all women.
J. Bennett, Bookkeeper
Victorious Woman! [has] been helpful to me as I’ve sought to gain insight and understanding in a society where paycheck and fairness often do not meet. Join a victory team.
Gayle Aldrich,
Lutheran Woman Today
This is a wonderful, touching book. I can think of several woman friends to whom I would like to give it (and a couple male friends, too). It has something for everyone and universal appeal.

Judge’s commentary,
Writer’s Digest Book Awards
My attention was captured by each woman’s experience …and I found myself not wanting to put the book down.
C. Tharp,
Business Owner
I’ve immensely enjoyed reading Victorious Woman, and I want to thank you again for the gift. I began to read the book at a time when I needed to receive the confirmation and encouragement that your illustrious characters share through their testimonies.
Renee D. Sumby,
Association Director
Coaching style questions help the reader explore her own situation and then take action toward her own victories.

IT IS FANTASTIC! I’m finding myself questioning some of my life choices but then that’s the whole point, right?
