Of course we celebrate our dating anniversary! Ummm she sounds like a party pooper… why shouldn’t you have something to celebrate? That doesn’t make sense.

We don’t. When we got married I told DH he could forget our dating anniversary and only celebrate our wedding anniversary.

 

That said – we have been together 10 years this year so I did get him a card and we did go out that night, but not as a major celebration – he got me nothing and that was OK as the expectation was that we do not celebrate that date any more.

We don’t. We disagree about when we actually started dating though =). Our relationship blossomed from what was originally just a friends-with-benefits arrangement.

We do. We’ll have been together for seven years this year. To us, what an anniversary celebrates is the committment to one another, not just the years of marriage. We were committed to each other the day we first said “I love you” and that is the date we chose for our anniversary. 

We plan on getting married on our anniversary date so that our wedding anniversary will be the same as our dating anniversary and we will just continue to count the years of committment, not marriage.

@MaddieM:

Yup but we don’t really do much.  We are very let’s stay at home and order in people.

@MaddieM:  We recently had our 7th anniversary as well! (in April) We went out for dinner…and it was DELICIOUS!!!! We don’t necessarily do anything big, sometimes we’ll just cook a nice meal, sometimes we’ll go out, but we usually do something.

@missjayb:  I really wanted us to get married on our dating anniversary, but unfortunately we would have to wait until 2016 for it to fall on a Saturday (it would be our 10th, which would  be cool, but I don’t want to wait that long). We’ve settled on as close to our anniversary as possible. Unfortunately in 2015 the closest happens to be Easter weekend, so that’s a no go. We will be getting married 9 days after our 9th anniversary 🙂

We never celebrated any anniversaries but will celebrate our wedding anniversary. I know some people that celebrate their dating anniversary and TBH I do think it’s kind of silly. But, to each their own and if it’s important to you then go for it! It’s not affecting your mom in any way but she’s still entitled to her opinion, as you are to yours.

I don’t think it is necessary once you’re married. I’d just like to remember one day.

We did celebrate our 1 year dating anniversary, but after that we haven’t. If I remember or he does, we would probably go out to eat instead of stay in, but it wouldn’t be a big deal anymore.

I’m another member of the 7 year club! It was our 7 years on the 29th March. We usually go out for a quiet meal and we get each other a small card.

@MaddieM:  I agree, once we’re married we’ll only celebrate our wedding anniversary. But right now…well it would be sad if we had to wait through 9 years of dating (it’ll be almost 9 years exactly when we get married) and one year of marriage before we could celebrate!
