My husband and I are coming up for 9 years of marriage this year, which means that next year, 2013, will be our whopping 10-year anniversary. Where does the time go?! Anyway, one of the things we are looking forward to doing to mark a milestone anniversary one of these years is renewing our marriage vows.
I love hearing about people doing this, because it re-establishes the commitment they made to each other on their wedding day. After being married some time, either with children or without, the couple has undoubtedly gone through some hardships, losses and other tough times and this is a way to say “yes, we are still together, we are still connected, and we make this promise to each other again today.”
Of course, now that we are geographically located in Florida, we might want to renew our vows barefoot on the beach (hint, hint, Stephen).
Have you marked a milestone anniversary by renewing your vows to your spouse? How do you feel about this – is one wedding enough, or would you go for it?
