Nope, I don’t even remember the exact date. We celebrate our first date anniversary, yearly which is now our wedding anniversary.

Every month?! God, that sounds exhausting. 

We don’t really know when it became ‘official official’ so we just use our first proper date as our anniversary. Coincidentally, our wedding is also on that day so we’ll only ever have one date to remember!

Every month? Seriously, who has time for that?

Before we were married we celebrated a yearly anniversary. It was more of an estimated date as neither of us could remember the actual date of us becoming ‘official.’

Now we celebrate our wedding anniversary (annually not monthly)

I used to try celebrate it annually, but my fiance would blow it off…lol…this year, I forgot about it and he was the one that remembered and acknowledged…pleasant surprise!

Our wedding anniversary day is one day off the anniversary of our first date, so we roll it all into one celebration.

We do, once a year. We don’t remember when our official “first date” was, so we go by the date he asked me to be his girlfriend. Our 10-year is around the corner now, hard to believe!

Darling Husband and I didn’t have an official date and have always celebrated the day we met as an anniversary. We got married on that date!

No idea what day we became official. It’s sometime in June, so we don’t do anything for it. We’ll celebrate our wedding anniversary though.

We celebrate year anniversaries, certainly not month. We just got married, so I guess we’ll transition to celebrating just our wedding anniversary, but I’ll probably still get him a card or something in December because it will be 9 years we’ve been together.

Every month? That’s a bit tedious. And it wouldn’t make any sense to celebrate it every month any more than a person would celebrate the date of their marriage every month. Presumably you made it official on one day of one month, so if you chose to remember it, it would only be once a year.

I don’t remember the date of our first date (I’ve never understood this. Do people remember their first date with everyone, just in case they become serious?), and we never had any discussion to make things “official”; it was just organic and we knew that neither of us wanted to see other people. So we never celebrated anything related to the relationship prior to marriage (I didn’t even know that was a thing until I read this site), and we now celebrate our wedding anniversary.

anonp :  weirdly enough, we never did make it official.  No discussion, it just was.  He still hasn’t asked me to be his girlfriend and we’ve been together 10 years, married 1.  So no.  We have, however, noted that our “10th anniversary” of when we met is coming, though I never remember the exact date.  maybe the 19th?  He might do something nice if it crosses his mind at the right time, but probably not as he’s not a romantic.  I’ll probably forget altogether.

Every month would only serve to make it completely meaningless.  and as others have said, exhausting.  Would you do the same for your first kiss?  First date when you weren’t official?  Engagement anniversary?  You’d never stop celebrating.

We definitely don’t celebrate monthly, but we do at least acknowledge the date we “made it official” as our dating anniversary once a year. Normally we don’t actually do anything for the occasion though.

I have to work backwards to remember how long we’ve been together so it’s safe to say we don’t celebrate this. Now we’re married we will celebrate our wedding anniversary though.
