    Personally -I might make a mental note of it, or say let’s go out to dinner – but I wouldn’t make a production of it and certainly wouldn’t expect a gift or anything.

    If your Darling Husband says “no such thing” then I wouldn’t put too much weight on it, doesn’t sound like he’s planning to.

    We kinda celebrated our 1 month anniversary.  We just had a date night, no gifts.

    Date night or whatever, and you can certainly acknowledge “hey we’ve been married six months, how cool” but not gifts, fancy dinner, the whole anniversary thing.

    I mean, technically he’s right. Anniversary = annual = years. πŸ™‚ But my Fiance and I like to acknowledge “oh hey it’s the 15th.” And don’t call it an anniversary, since, ya know, it’s not. πŸ™‚

    We don’t do monthaversaries but we  definitely did a big huge shabang for our 6 month! We went to Europe and conceived our baby.  I highly doubt we will continue to do that every 6monthaversary, but it was a great way to celebrate for our first. πŸ™‚ Any excuse to indulge. But then, this is coming from a girl who likes to have a Birthday Month of celebrating.

    I’m bad with dates, so I didn’t even know when our 6 months came up. I think my husband said something about it, but it was just kind of “this is exciting that we’ve been married for 6 months” and that’s it.

    lol We did…. but we have a bit of a different situation in that we were legally married 6 months before our family/religious wedding, so technically we celebrated our legal wedding date with an official wedding!  πŸ˜›  Since our wedding dates are 6 months apart, we’ll probably do a little something-something each year on each date since both dates are special for their own reasons!

    Had we remembered, we probably would have had a small celebration- a nicer dinner and opened a bottle of wine or something.  But we both forgot, we did however get on the subject by the end of the weekend.

    @bestbuddies:  Yah for birthmonth!  Oh and you pretty much have to be an initiator, planner to get the 6monthaversary going. Sometimes guys stress out about a ‘pressure day’, but they usually like to celebrate if they are not in charge of making it happen.

    We don’t do anything for our ‘half-anniversary’ because there is too much going on in December anyway!

    We didn’t do anything – in fact I just had to count on my fingers to see if we’ve been married 6 months yet! HA…silly goose…

    I definitely think a nice meal or a little date could be nice but I wouldn’t do any more than that (clearly!  hope I remember our actual anniversary!)  Laughing

    We might do something small. We’ll be so excited about being married that six months will be a little special. πŸ™‚

    I’m a dork in that I remember on the 17th of every month that it’s our month-versary!  After 2 years, though – I’m going to quit counting.  It’s easy now that we’re only at 13 months.

    We did celebrate our 6 month anniversary.  He planned a couples massage and a nice dinner out – he did such a great job and we had a fantastic day.  We won’t keep doing that, of course, but it was nice and I think you need to be proud that you happily made it to 6 months…not everyone can say that.
