The decision to get married may be the most significant step you take in your life. Weddings are sacrosanct. You promise to cherish your spouse as long as you live. You take a vow to support each other in good and bad times. And you promise to love and be faithful forever.

Wedding anniversaries are important milestones, as you count the years that rolled by in marital bliss. But marriage is not always easy. Every couple faces challenges that threaten to tear them apart. When the foundation of marriage is weak, the relationship can crumble to dust. However, many couples rise above these challenges and emerge stronger than ever.

Wedding anniversaries celebrate the triumphant years and remind the couple of their blessings. If your friends or relatives are celebrating their wedding anniversary, congratulate the spouses for their togetherness. Bless them with heartfelt wedding anniversary wishes. Recall the beautiful memories of their wedding day to remind them of their deep love that keeps them going strong year after year.
