celebrating five year wedding anniversary

I have been married for five years to my soulmate.  I still remember it like it was yesterday; it was filled with happiness and love.  I cherish the memory of celebrating with family and friends.

As I look back on the last couple years, all I can remember are fun filled memories and not one single regret.  Frank is not only just my husband; he is also my best friend, my hero and my supporter.  We have a very strong connection based on love, trust and honesty.  I attribute the success of our marriage from first having been friends online where our connection grew stronger over time.

In my opinion, there are several key factors in any good relationship.  For example, one is the practice of accepting the other person for who they are without trying to change them.  In our relationship, I choose to follow the yoga lifestyle with Frank’s support and acceptance, while I don’t force my yoga beliefs or vegetarian diet on Frank.  The second part is working together as a team to find solutions and solve problems.  Another important factor is learning how to communicate with each other our needs, wants and concerns.  A great way to connect is through laughter, having fun and sharing interests.

Marriage is not only about living with each other but also learning the art of compromise from beliefs, traditions to ideas.  The key is to meet each other at a halfway point where everyone is happy.  We both are also very fortunate to have very similar families that are very caring, supportive and easy to get along with.

In conclusion, I have no doubts or regrets at all in the last five years. Instead each moment has been perfect and I cannot wait to see what the future will bring us.
