    The number of years we’ve been together has never been depressing to me. 

    We dated for 7 years before getting engaged and happily celebrated every one of those anniversaries. Now we’ve been together for almost 11 years (married for almost 3) and still love celebrating our anniversary.

    If you can’t happily celebrate how long you’ve been together anymore it may be time to start re-thinking the relationship.

    Because I never go to specific boards and just use the feed from the home page to see what topics have been posted. I rarely even look at what board something was posted on as I can post on whatever threads I want. And I was with my husband for 7 years before getting engaged so I think I have some perspective that those who are still waiting may appreciate. Shinytoy :

    I’m not waiting anymore either but I think the first commenter has a point that you don’t seem to want to address.

    I’m also not waiting, but my husband and I started dating at 16. He proposed on our 10th anniversary. We too celebrate our dating anniversary even after being married.

    Shinytoy :  Lol wow rude. You obviously changed the title and post, because that wasn’t what it said when I clicked into it.

    I am no longer waiting as of February (the proposal really caught me off guard as I was expecting it to be another 2 years at least), but until then we have been together for about 6 years and I loved celebrating our anniversary, though for us it was a little bit close to Christmas and New Year’s and my birthday, but we would still happily acknowledge it and I would always try to get him something (I wouldn’t expect him to get me anything since I have Christmas and my birthday right after the other and two gifts is plenty).

    I remember when I was waiting, I felt like it was forever, but he said he had to get his ducks in a row first and I myself realized had a lot of work to do on my own life so I just focused on that and then the proposal just caught me totally off guard when I finally accepted it would be at least a year or two more.

    But still, even when I wished we could get married, I still celebrated anniversaries happily.

    Edit: I know you said waiting bees only and I am not anymore, but I have been waiting for quite a while up until then. I also posted before I read that you got mad at engaged and married people for posting.

    You are being extremely rude. You changed the title after people had already started commenting. 

    Also, just because people are married now doesn’t mean their experiences whilst waiting aren’t valid.

    I think if you find it depressing to celebrate anniversaries then you have serious issues in your relationship.

    Rude much. 

     

    I met my husband at 19 so we waited a long time to get married. We celebrated every anniversary.

     Aren’t you engaged? From one of your earlier posts: “So bees…I’ve been with my Fiance for maybe 8 years and he is definately the One.We have been engaged for 6 years but every time we set a date something bad would happen.“  So, you’re not waiting either. You’re waiting to get married because you have had some obstacles that prevent you from setting a date. You’re not waiting to get engaged. What’s with the high and mighty attitude against married women then?    Shinytoy :
