I found something where they call it the “marriage box”… instead of focusing on an anniversary or fight specifically, there’s this with it:

Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all the things they have longed for; companionship, intimacy, friendship, etc… the truth is, that marriage at the start is an empty box, you must put something in it before you can take anything out. There is no love in marriage, love is in people and people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage, you have to infuse it into your marriage. A couple must learn the art, and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising, and of keeping the box full. If you take out more than you put in, the box wil be empty.

My FI and I are going to have the pastor read this, and then we will put in wine, love letters, little gifts to each other, etc etc.  We can know between us that we should open it if we get into a huge fight, but it symbollicaly shows the things that we are giving to each other to keep our marriage full 🙂
