To honor and celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue, in their first ever joint project, have created a book together What Makes A Marriage Last: 40 Celebrated Couples Share With Us the Secret to a Happy Life.
During the past year they travelled the country “double dating” with other couples they admire and found their stories both surprising and inspiring, hilarious and heartbreaking but always bracingly honest and always uncovering that unique combinations of work and play, give and take, and sometimes conflict too that have torn many couples apart but only tightened the relationships for these couples and much to their own surprise they ended up telling their own marital journey something they always were reluctant to do. They say it’s not a “how to” but a “what” book—a collection of deeply personal and insightful tales.
As many of us are now working from home and many marriages are suddenly taking on brand new dynamics, we think it’s an interesting moment to hear from Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue about how they and other couples have successfully navigated life’s challenges.
Join us as they share the stories that present the strongest case ever for making that promise “as long as we both shall live.”
