For Immediate Release
Launch of New Book
Marriage Advice from Author Married Six Times
Getting married for just five years. It seems like some crazy idea. How could that make any sense?
Author Annmarie Kelly says it’s not a crazy idea. She thinks it makes perfect sense. She’s been doing her marriage that way through six marriages – to the same man. Now, thirty years after her first marriage, Annmarie is sharing the secrets and how-to’s in her new book, The Five-Year Marriage: Shifting the Marriage Paradigm. It’s launching on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Kelly’s office at Evolve Business Park, 985 Old Eagle School Road, Suite 502, Wayne, PA 19087. Seating is limited and reservations are required: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ready-to-launch-tickets-43178220219
What good is a Five-Year Marriage?
“People are living longer and doing it in a world full of constant change” Kelly says. “‘Til death do us part’ has become a stranglehold for too many couples. The excited lovers who walk down the aisle won’t be the same couple in five years.”
Kelly explains that, while common sense recognizes that truth, most couples don’t consciously acknowledge it – and that’s the problem. “They change jobs or careers, have children, take care of aging parents and more. Those things change you. They change how you think, how you see life, and how you see your future. Yet most couples still try to live with the same agreements they made at their wedding. Clearly it’s not working.”
A 2013 Gallup poll showed that 54 percent of adults (18 and over) in the United States are married, 20 percent used to be married, and 21 percent desire marriage. That’s 95% of the population have some thought that marriage is important.
Yet, in 2017, the marriage success rate still hovers around 52%. Experts say it isn’t higher because many couples are simply ignoring the commitment and choosing to live together. A recent PEW research report says that 25% of millennials won’t ever get marriage.
“There’s a gap between reality and desire, Kelly says. “Today’s couples are looking for a better way – and the Five-Year Marriage closes the gap and gives couples a more solid path forward.
