It is a little discriminatory - " … In 2017, the Census Bureau reported that a record number of adults in the U.S. were not married. More than 110 million residents were divorced or widowed or had always been single; that’s more than 45 percent of all Americans aged 18 or older." https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/05/health/single-people-partner/index.html
@zinimusprime the poll was about what married folk do for their anniversary, and the something else option referred specifically what they did that was not in the list provided, so the poll essentially eliminated non-married folk from having any response option.
It may not have been prejudicial (or was it?), but it is sort of unfair to restrict participation to little more than half of the population (he complained while insistently chattering on in a forum about a subject he wasn’t included in).
I’m thankful that complaining always seems to be an option here …
We got married in December, and had a Winter Wonderland theme. Lots of pre-lit trees, and we had guests bring ornaments. So on/around our anniversary, we have a nice meal and decorate our tree with the ornaments we got at the wedding.
I have given my wife the big-deal jewelry gifts to celebrate the milestone anniversaries. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a meaningful and wonderful acknowledgement.
But the anniversaries we remember with the greatest fondness were when the kids were little, and getting a baby sitter and going out was far more work than it was worth, and after feeding the kids something or other, we got some take-out sushi and finally found a few minutes to sit down and eat it with a couple of Corona Lights and the mess and the noise and the chaos that only three rambunctious boys can create. Those were and always will be the good old days…
My 14th wedding anniversary was the 19th. We left the kids at my folks house and took the trailer to stay at Fort Stevens State Park for a week to go discover old ww2 and maritime stuff. It’s my only time I can truly be without kids all year. Stay at home moms really need time away like that.
@pooflady@rarestock Huh. My anniversary was just about a month ago, and I just looked around this morning and we still have kids.
I thought this was the expected condition. It hadn’t even occurred to me to question it.
