An anniversary is an important marker each year for a couple.
It’s a time when couples look back on the year and evaluate, consciously or unconsciously, how well the marriage is doing.
- Are we happy?
- Do we still like/love each other?
One thing I see happy couples do is make their anniversary and the celebration of their anniversary a priority. As such, they stop to acknowledge their relationship and celebrate it, no matter what else is going on.
It’s easy when you have young children and work demands to let a proper celebration fall by the wayside, but the message that unintentionally gets communicated is, “You may not matter that much.”
Happy couples don’t blow off their anniversary.
Celebrating it is an acknowledgement of how much they treasure the marriage and one another.
