Relationship Question: Do You Celebrate Your Dating Anniversary?


Confession: Mark and I recently passed our 10-year mark as a couple, but since we got married last June, we pretty much skipped over the date. I sent him a sweet little text reminding him what day it was and he responded, but the day was nothing out of the ordinary.

We originally tried to plan our wedding so that the date would fall closer to our old anniversary, but we were having an outdoor ceremony and reception, and the weather can still be a little unpredictable in early April, even in sunny Southern California. But nine years is a long time to celebrate one anniversary together and then suddenly switch, right?! So I was wondering, what do most couples do once they get married?

Do you still celebrate your dating anniversary? If you’re not married yet, do you think you’ll still commemorate your first date once you do tie the knot?

It would probably be silly to celebrate two anniversaries every year after you got married, but I do sort of wish that we had done something for this big 10-year one. (A decade together is a pretty big deal!) Luckily, I have a few very special surprises up my sleeve for our first married anniversary, so I’m not stressing too much… (Stay tuned for that!)

P.S. Here’s another relationship question for ya: Do you go to bed together?
