Celebrations give us a sense of recognition for even the smallest accomplishments and milestones. Being recognised allows us to feel good about ourselves and take pride in whatever we do in life because we know that someone who matters cares. It motivates us to do better in life knowing that we have someone to celebrate with us. This is the reason why we actively seek to encourage and promote good behaviour in young children by praising them when they achieve a new milestone in life,

Celebrating also helps create a sense of unity among couples. It feels good to know that someone cares and is always there for you to celebrate your success. This is especially so if he or she has seen how hard you have worked in order to reach your goal. You’ve been through the pit and now you’re at the peak, together. Seeing each other grow and progress and to know that you are part of the other’s personal success is a tool for bonding like no other.

Celebrations are fun and provide us with opportunities to engage in the joys of life, regardless of which stage we are at. Such experiences allow us to loosen up and enjoy the moment. This helps to spark positive emotions to our memories. With a high emotional charge attached to these moments, it will be easier for us to recall them in the future.

In a study, couples who reported above-average sexual satisfaction in their marriage were ten to thirteen times more likely to describe their marriage as “very happy” compared with those who reported below average sexual satisfaction. It doesn’t always have to be spontaneous – in fact there are many couples who plan sex into their calendar. So don’t be afraid to plan the celebration of sex into your life with your spouse – and you will reap the benefits!

What did you do for your last anniversary? Give your spouse a card? Prepare a small dinner at home- no biggie? Did you even remember your anniversary at all? If you didn’t, then you need to change all that.

Wedding anniversaries are just as important as the wedding itself. Celebrating your anniversary and paying special attention to it proves that your marriage or relationship is a priority. Marking the date that you vowed to be with your partner forever allows you to remember the day vividly.
