According to Wiki Answers it refers to a period where relationships are most likely to end, with partners keen to leave or cheat around this time. This is all a bit of a concern as Dave and me celebrate 7 years together on Thursday 19 January. Hang on though, having read further down the page on Wiki, it is now thought that this happens way before 7 years for most couples - phew, I reckon we are safe. Apparently some now refer to it as a 3 year glitch, because that is how long the average marriage lasts before divorce proceedings commence, according to some sources.
Anyhow, we like to have a little celebration around this time and I myself much prefer it to Valentines Day as it is ours and ours alone. This year we might go out for a meal and give each other little gifts rather than anything major as we are still saving up for our Schwinn bikes. I have got Dave 2 presents:-
They are both on order from Amazon.co.uk so I am really hoping they get here in time. The first one is a speaker. It is honestly the best sound I have ever heard come out of something to small and portable. They come in loads of different colours, cost just £15 and fit neatly into a handbag and they weigh next to nothing. They charge through a USB and one charge gives 11 hours play time. A woman at work has ordered a few as presents and I can really see myself buying these for loads of people this year. Highly recommended.
The second is a one line a day journal type thing that lasts for 5 years. In a way this is a joke present as I am always having a go at Dave for turning into a grumpy old man but equally I hope he actually fills it in as he does suffer from stress rather a lot and I am hoping that if he writes down just one happy thought every day then he will become a more positive individual. Sometimes when he is angry or sad he writes a little journal but he ends up throwing it away as it makes him sad to look back at it. I hope this is almost something he is proud to show me and enjoys completing it each day.
What would you get your other half as an anniversary gift?
