This is where it gets interesting.
They do, however, love to celebrate wedding anniversaries, especially the greater number of them that they have shared. Anniversaries not only provide a special time of reminiscing, they also provide a fun atmosphere in which there is always a comment or two about how one or the other managed to make it “that long” with the other one. Make those later-in-life anniversaries extra special because they are becoming rare.
