Ask Colin: Planning

No matter how long you've been together, take a moment to celebrate the day it all began.

My wife and I were married for 28 years the first time, divorced for seven years then remarried and have been together for eight years. We want to have an anniversary celebration this year. What number should we use (a combination of the two marriages, 36 years?) and what date? The original wedding date was June 10th; the second wedding was August 4th.

I would celebrate on June 10th. It’s the one that counts the most, since it’s when you first got together…the seven years apart were a breather!
