    Make Each Anniversary Count
Although in the 1990 s April and
October have become popular
wedding months, June is still a
favorite time for couples to
exchange vows. This means that
June is also a time when many cou
ples celebrate anniversaries.
Most couples are married fewer
than SO years. Consequently, it’s
important to make each of these SO
celebrations count And consider
ing the current divorce rate—l.l
million divorces annually—each
of us who is happily married cer
tainly has reason to celebrate.
Dr. Thomas Lee, Utah State
University, says, “Many couples
will not have all of the (marriage
success) factors in their favor and
will still have successful mar
riages. Some with the odds in their
favor will fail nevertheless. Part of
the difference lies in the extent to
which couples take care of their
One way to take care of your
marriage is to make your anniver
sary celebration a special, person
alized one. This past year my hus
band and 1 really enjoyed our
anniversary. I sent him on a “trea
sure hunt” to spots around the
community that held significance
to us as a couple—the place of our
first date, where he proposed to
me, etc. We ended the evening
with a gourmet dinner at home. I
had a lot of fun reminiscing as I
planned it, and fortunately, he had
fun during the evening activities.
Each year we also restate our vows
to one another. To me, they get
more meaningful each time we say
them because we think back on the
joys and sorrows that we have
shared during the year.

make this year’s anniversary spe

cial, or if you just want to remind
your spouse of your love, here are
some ideas from Dr. Glen Jenson,
family life specialist at Utah State
Jenson suggests:
• Take a vacation to the place of
your courtship or early years of
marriage. Go to a restaurant that
you frequented during your
• Spend a few hours looking
through your wedding album or
watching your ceremony video.
Play music that reminds you of
your early years of marriage.
Replay the song that you danced to
(xi your wedding day, and invite
each other to dance again.
• Reaffirm old vows or write
new ones that have to do wijji the
challenges ahead. Reflect on the
year. What positive things hap
pened in your marriage? What not
so-positive things happened that
you can leant from?
• Arrange to take your anniver
sary day off from work. Isn’t it as
important as any national or state
• Together do something entire
ly new and different. Why wait
until mid-life or retirement to do
something crazy? Create a mem

Research reveals that couples
who talk with each other often, are
sensitive to each other’s feelings,
and use non-verbal communica
tion will tend to maintain strong,
satisfying marriages. Your
anniversary is a great time to rein
force some of these habits.
And the exciting thing about
taking time to celebrate your mar
riage and keep it strong is that you
set a wonderful example for the
children in your home. Studies
show that if a couple’s parents are
