Wedding anniversary? Celebrate 5yrs stupid?

Anonymous

Ok so we hit 5yrs next year. And I know everybody normally does a 10 yr celebration, but if my husband is up for it I want to do maybe like a big celebration (if it’s even possible as we live 24hrs away from all of our family) or maybe an informal vow renewal. In my mind the first 5 years are hard. That’s where you truly learn everything about each other and come to love it and become one. For us, there was something my husband used to do and I did not like but now, it’s our favorite hobby together! Anyone have any ideas or experiences?

    Everyone I know who did a vow renewal gets divorced within a year. Maybe it’s trying too hard to pretend to be happy. Not saying that’s you. But a celebration sounds nice.

    Go for it. I don’t know if I’d necessarily do it, but if you both want to then why not? I think being together for 5 years is a great accomplishment, and you should be proud! Live it up and celebrate!

    I think EVERY year you make is cause for a celebration. Whether it be big or small. The first five are the most trying.

    That’s what I was thinking. He’s in the military and the last five years was the hardest with him have to go out to sea and the we had a child who is turning two this year. We are still striving. Be nice to do that big celebration.
