From host Adina Laver: “On today’s episode of Wonder Your Way to Brilliant, I share about a concept that I found absolutely curious, fascinating, and powerful: The 5 Year Marriage. When I first heard the phrase, I was confused. Curious, I listened more deeply. The 5 Year Marriage not only offers a framework for a deep, intimate relationship but a model way of thinking about all aspects of our lives. Enjoy!”

Five-Year Marriage™ Book Reviews

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. – 5 stars – 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

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

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

This book is vert inspiring. These women give us hope and direction. Thanks Annmarie for writing about these encouraging lives. – J. Richard Volpe

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
