We count the day we met as our anniversary because our lives literally began together that day. We met on a Mon, went on dates on Wed and Fri, and then spent the weekend together. From that point on we basically lived with each other until we both made arrangements to vacate our separate homes. Since we were already 30+ years old, we pretty much knew what we were looking for and knew when we had found it.
So today I had roses delivered to Spouse at his office, which we both like because he gets attention from his female colleagues, and I like that they see that gay people share many of the same romantic customs and traditions as straight people.
19 years and counting!!
