Happy #ValentinesDay! I'm excited to share a project Phil and I have been working on together — our new book, "What Makes a Marriage Last," will be out May 5th! It's filled with secrets of our own forty-year marriage, as well as the exciting stories of the long-married couples we sat down with — celebrities, athletes, musicians, comedians, writers, and even a U.S. president. We asked them all: What's your secret? And what they told us was surprising, inspiring, romantic and often hilarious. We hope you'll love our labor of love, whether you're newlyweds or a long-married couple like us. Visit the link in my bio to pre-order your copy of #WhatMakesaMarriageLast today!
COLLECTION OF STORIES
The "Free to Be... You and Me" author and her long time husband traveled the country and sat down with forty celebrated couples whose long marriages they've admired, including award-winning actors, athletes, and newsmakers, writers, comedians, musicians, and a former US president.
The book in itself is a fruition of the intimate stories that the iconic duo gathered coupled with their own rich journey that they traveled together in the last forty years.
As the beautiful Thomas announced in her caption, the book was inspired by plenty of anecdotes that were surprising, inspiring, romantic, and often hilarious.
Thomas had hinted at the huge announcement a day prior to actually making it with a throwback picture from the day of her wedding with the captions suggesting some excitement coming really soon.
So, eager fans had been ready to unravel the surprise, and when she made the official announcement, fans wasted no time to join in on the comments section to voice their response.
One excited fan shared that Thomas's book was right on time and was hopeful that it would help her yet again in her marriage, the same way that Thomas's "Free to be..." books helped her through her childhood.
FANS ARE EXCITED
Another fan took the opportunity to congratulate the couple for their new project and stated that he was really looking forward to what this publication had to offer.
Yet another fan was amazed that time had gone by so fast, and the power couple had already completed four decades in their relationship while others couldn't help but admire the charming duo.
The duo had instant chemistry, and four decades into their marriage, Thomas is the stepmother to Donahue's five children from his previous marriage to Margaret Cooney but has no children of her own.
