The Importance of Anniversaries

in Anniversary

Today is the anniversary of when Mrs. C8j said yes that she actually wanted to be married to me (you can query her as to her sanity on this day), and as a helpful reminder for those folks who “poo poo” anniversaries and such, these are important dates for many reasons.

Mmmm... Cake

Mmmm… Cake

  1. Realizing there is someone who actually wants to live with you, which in my case is almost miraculous.
  2. You can realize just how fast time is passing in your life, when you realize you have lived with the same person for almost half of your life (in my case).
  3. A good excuse to have a small celebration

It’s pretty easy to sacrifice these kind of celebrations in the name of frugality, but if you don’t mark these dates, you’ll regret it later in life.

As a message to Mrs. C8j :to quote the great one, “Baby you’re the greatest!”

    And to tie this back to personal finances, getting and staying married is probably one of the best financial decisions two people can make.

    That’s a good one to celebrate. I agree in the importance of anniversaries. It’s important to look back at those key moments that define a ‘life’ to remember the times, reflect on the times since, and appreciate those who also shared that joy with you. Congrats!

    Peter De Vries said, like other bonds, the marriage bond is one that matures slowly. Congratulations!
