What Makes a Marriage Last: 40 Celebrated Couples Share With Us the Secrets to a Happy Life
Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue
Blissfully married for 40 years, Marlo Thomas, 82, and Phil Donahue, 84, know something about happy unions. But when friends of theirs abruptly divorced after 28 years, they were shaken, so they decided to travel across the country to find out how other famous couples sustained their bonds. Packed with interviews and commentary, the book includes stories from Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, who explain how their marriage (now 31 years strong) survived after they lost everything in the Bernie Madoff investment scandal; Jesse Jackson, who talks about finding forgiveness after infidelity; and Ray Romano, who describes how he learned the importance of saying “I love you” out loud to his wife. They're loving portraits of couples who, no matter what, keep saying “I do."
