あらすじ・解説

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 40 celebrated couples whose long marriages they’ve admired - award-winning actors, athletes, and newsmakers to writers, comedians, musicians, and a former US 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 audiobook is a beautiful gift for couples of every age and stage.

I really wanted Phil & Marlo

I enjoyed the knowledge that I received in the book. It was an enjoyable, intelligent, eye-opening, and I think it achieved what they set out to do. But... Narration was very upsetting. Disconcerting actually. I really needed Phil & Marlo to narrate all their own parts. I understand, because there were hours upon hours of recording which required editing, that it made it impossible for everyone to say their parts but certainly Phil & Marlo could have done theirs. I appreciated the diversity of couples. So, it was a good book but the narration just did not sit well with me.

Why Did They Do That?

Well, for me, they blew this one, big time. I read this book because I thought it would be interesting to hear about these couple’s marriages. The problem is, that they, these famous people, who all have a voice, weren’t speaking for themselves. The narrators (one of whom I’ve listen to narrate many stories) did the talking for them. It totally took an interesting book and made it sound.. well, awful. Why did they not have the couples that they interviewed read their own chapters? WHY didn’t Marlo and Phil actually narrate these interviews? Seriously, I though that what could have been a totally fun book to hear, was, almost hard to listen to. While learning about these couples was interesting, this is a book to be “read.” The audio version doesn’t measure up. Because these performers were speaking the words of famous people we all know well, the narrators really just didn’t work.

Perfect for summer!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The chapters were short enough to pick up at any point. You will get insight on the private lives of these very public people. So enjoyable!

Highly recommended & fun!

This book was refreshing and enlighten. Taught me a lot about couples indivisible styles and how each relationship is constructed. Some lessons I’ve already applied to my own new relationship and look forward to learning much more.

Great audio read 🤍❤️

EXCELLENT BOOK!


This was one of the best books EVER!
If you are married (for any length of time), thinking of getting married, engaged or even dating. Listen to this book. It’s so insightful, encouraging and full of great advice. The way the couples shared on so many levels was amazing!

What a wonderful compilation

This was wonderful! A great collection of loving couples sharing their own stories. Not a “you should” book but just sharing what they do in their relationships. It would make a great gift to young couples.

Beautiful Marriage Stories

I loved this book! It was nice to hear everybody’s personal stories! Things aren’t always as rosy as they may seem! I also learned my husband and I already do a lot of the things suggested for a long and happy marriage!

Please use the real live people to read there parts!

Loved the book! Learned how special all these couples are and made me realize how much I love my husband! Many things we have in common. Many things I will now do with my husband to show appreciation and build our marriage. The narration was difficult to follow at times and had to rewind to figure out where I was. Please can you use the tapes used during interviews or have the people read their own parts! The book would end up being a national treasure! Thank you for writing this book please do another one!

Love story, hate the narrators

Really enjoying this book, but the voice of the women interviewed always sound whiny. It's really a terrible casting
