Today it’s been 5 years since Sumit and I got engaged. We never really know which anniversaries to celebrate – the day we met? The day we got engaged? The day we got married? We used to end up not really celebrating any of our anniversaries and then sort of saying “we’ll just catch the next one”, so we finally decided to just celebrate the anniversary of the day of our civil ceremony (but the other day Sumit surprised me with a gift on the anniversary of the day we met, so let’s see).
But actually, for me, the big thing was our engagement. After we got married, Sumit and I looked at each other and asked “do you feel different?”. And neither of us felt a bit different. But getting engaged felt big. It felt like it sort of made us official. Suddenly I had a ring on my finger – something public, that said to the world that we were forever.
Did getting married or getting engaged feel bigger for you? Do you celebrate all your anniversaries or just one?
