You often hear that fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. But that statistic isn’t really true. It was true for a short period of time, but it was an eye-watering figure, so it stuck in the public’s mind. The actual rate of divorce is a lot lower these days, hovering around 35%.
That means the vast majority of marriages are happy. If you’re in one of them, then why not take the time to celebrate? You and your partner have come a long way, and that deserves a dose of happiness. In this post, we’ll look at some lovely tips for honoring the love you and your spouse share.
Revisit Destinations From Your Past
As we said above: you and your partner will have come a long way to make it to where you are now. One way to celebrate your love is to look at taking a journey back to those important destinations from your past. You’ll have places where you hung out when you were first dating, destinations you visited on your first trips, and other places that have played a pivotal role in your relationship. Consider taking a stroll down memory lane, remembering the good moments from the old days.
Renew Your Vows
If you’ve been married for a while, then you could consider renewing your vows. This requires less work than your first wedding but can be just as fun — in fact, it can be even more fun since there’s less pressure. Most people tend to have casual, low-level wedding vow renewal ceremonies. You can even do it in your own home. The main thing is to gather the people nearest and dearest to you, throw a party, and celebrate your love. Perfect!
Symbols of Love
Another option is to exchange symbols of love. You’ll have done that in the early stages of your relationship, but there’s no law that says it has to end just because you’ve married. In fact, it’s a brilliant way to keep the romance alive. There’s no shortage of options available to you. If you’re approaching an anniversary, you could consider getting your partner a beautiful wood ring, which symbolizes commitment and strength. They’ll be delighted to receive such a gift, and it’ll provide a daily reminder of just how special the relationship is.
Spend the Day Together
Finally, remember that you don’t need to do anything overly grand to celebrate your marriage. A good old-fashioned date day/night can serve as an important reminder of everything that you two have. It’s all about clearing the schedule and doing things that are romantic. For example, you might consider booking a day at the spa, followed by dinner at your favorite restaurant before returning home to watch a romantic movie curled up on the couch.
All marriages are unique and special in their own ways. By taking the tips above, you’ll be showing your partner that you recognize the specialness of your relationship, ensuring that your future is as bright as your past.
