On the way to celebrating our 6 months together a few nights ago, Andrew turned on the car radio and hit on Boys’ Night Out’s seemingly providential topic on whether people still celebrate their romantic relationships and how often they do it: weeksaries, monthsaries or anniversaries. One funny comment from their listener was that “weeksaries and monthsaries are for those who are doubtful they’ll last any longer than that.” A bit harsh but tragically probably true, generally speaking.
But there are those who simply enjoy celebrating every little milestone, lest they start taking things for granted. This, I think, is one of the reasons my friend launched her monthsaries website and just a few weeks ago, married the same guy. There is something to be said about going out of your way to make your significant other feel how important he/she is to you during these celebrations.
