Power couple Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue have created a compelling and intimate collection of intriguing conversations with famous couples about their enduring marriages and how they have made them last through the challenges we all share.What makes a marriage last? Who doesn’t want to know the answer to that question? To unlock this mystery, iconic couple Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue crisscrossed the country and conducted intimate conversations with forty celebrated couples whose long marriages they’ve admired—from award-winning actors, athletes, and newsmakers to writers, comedians, musicians, and a former U.S. president and First Lady. Through these conversations, Marlo and Phil also revealed the rich journey of their own marriage.    What Makes a Marriage Last  offers practical and heartfelt wisdom for couples of all ages, and a rare glimpse into the lives of husbands and wives we have come to know and love. Marlo and Phil’s frequently funny, often touching, and always engaging conversations span the marital landscape—from that first rush of new love to keeping that precious spark alive, from navigating hard times to celebrating triumphs, from balancing work and play and family to growing better and stronger together. At once intimate, candid, revelatory, hilarious, instructive, and poignant, this book is a beautiful gift for couples of every age and stage.Featuring interviews with:Alan and Arlene Alda • Kevin Bacon and Kyra SedgwickPresident Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter • James Carville and Mary MatalinDeepak and Rita Chopra • Patricia Cornwell and Staci GruberBryan Cranston and Robin Dearden • Billy and Janice CrystalJamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest • Ted Danson and Mary SteenburgenViola Davis and Julius Tennon • Gloria and Emilio EstefanMichael J.
