Helmet age question

I have been using the same HJC helmet since 2004, and wife's HJC is since 2006. A friend told me to get new helmet every 5 years.

Is that a standard recommendation, or can I inspect for some damages?

Wife only rode pillion with me. Never crashed. I crashed once in 2012, slow sleep, helmet did not touch ground (no scrapes).

Shall we get new helmets?
