How often do you celebrate your marriage?
We try to celebrate our marriage many times a year and not just on our wedding anniversary. Celebrating our marriage helps us focus on the blessings and less on the obstacles. Our love is a blessing in the storm of a prison sentence.

I was just curious how often others celebrate their marrige.


• Several times a year.
• Two or three times a year
• Once a year.
• Every five years.
• Never.

I couldn't vote, because we celebrate monthly, complete with cards. Have almost five years in now and have never forgotten. I am waiting for the real way to celebrate in style when he is home with me. Now that will be a real celebration.

We've celebrated our marriage every chance we get! Whether it was an evening home with a few movies, or a chance to enjoy dinner out, we always made our comments devoting ourselves to God and His wonderful marriage he designed for us...Praise God for His miracles!

We just got married in November but we have two dates now to celebrate really. We will celebrate not only our wedding anniversary but each year we celebrate the day we became a couple.

I just joined last night. We have been married for one and a half years. On Feb. 10 at our church outside we will renew our vows. My husband will call and participate by phone because he is inside still. Is there anyone here on the Christian site who is married to a lifer??

we celebrate our marraige daily! There is not a day that goes by I dont honor it and cherish it. Every day is a day to celebrate a marraige, however I only celebrate 2 anniversaries yearly. One is the day we met and the other the day we married.

My husband and I celebrate our marriage on the 28th of EVERY MONTH! What's so surprising about it is, it's his idea. At first I thought it was just "new" to him and was just happy about being married. I knew it was truly something he was seriously committed to after the first year. On Oct. 28th we celebrated our 5th year and I can say he has not missed one month! How can I not love him?!!!!! I truly know I am BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED!!!!

We celebrate our marriage every day, every hour,every minute, and every second. We were married On September 11 and I have never regreted my decision in marrying him while he was incarcerated. I know God's heart for me cause he has blessed me with a man that loves me for who I am and has loved me past all my pain. and even though he is there he still knows how to be in my spirit. I love him to death.

We are not married yet, but I would like to celebrate twice a year. Every 6 months. Nothing fancy, but a card or something.

We are not married yet, but we celebrate our relationship every day by cherising each other, loving each other and being there for each other. When we do get married we will continue to celebrate every day. He is my soul mate and i am so thankful i met him!!

We celebrate it all the time. We are remarried. I had to leave him years ago when he was self-destructing and then when he rebuilt himself and became once again the man I had fallen in love with, I reaffirmed our destiny by remarriage. I know I cannot live without him. We are locked, true, always and forever. We both realize how blessed we are and celebrate our love and commitment all the time, every day, deeply seriously we are truly as one.

Depends on what you mean by "celebrate".... we honor our anniversaries- both our wedding and first date with gifts, cards, dinner, whathaveyou but there's not a week that goes by that we don't have some conversation that involves one of us saying "I'm so glad we're married" or "Nobody has a more wonderful husband/wife" or something else that pays tribute to the general joy of the fact that we are husband and wife.
