Wedding anniversaries are the remembrance of the most special day in a one’s life when you agree to share with someone special. This is a turning point in life (at least for a Hindu like me). It is a serious and sacred ceremony which binds the couple in divine matrimony with the exchange wedding garlands and vows for the rest of their lives.
I am very poor on remembering birthdays and anniversaries. I realized today is a blessed milestone in my life when throughout the day one or another friends and relatives kept on calling and wishing me happy wedding anniversary. The romance is still in the air as it is just four days after Valentine’s Day.
Generally we notice fancy bouquets of flowers, classy candlelit dinners or romantic holidays on such day but in our case it is a simple another day with slight warmth of love and it seems to be all correct. Sadly in our modern society such relations do not last for lifetime and is miserable.
This is our seventh anniversary and seems to be the last year of flirting without children. In Common observation the couples with children are less romantic than those without children, but I do not subscribe to this. The real romance keeps on rising with age.
I am very poor in arranging and giving gifts, I lack this innovative art of creativity even I can’t comprehend the history behind the traditional anniversary gifts but the fact remains everyone likes to have one.
Though the warmth of our relation has kept on increasing ever since our marriage took place but at certain point of time I really assume that a nerd person like me who is not very attractive, not perfect, not rich, not powerful, not expressive of his love could be a very uninteresting hubby for his spouse.
Any ways, every year of a wedding anniversary should be celebrated in a special way. This day is just like the wedding day itself to commemorate it and enchanting new flavour to the old tradition.
