Natasha, I love you!
We’ve been together for half of our lives, and married for the last 17. Counting each year for three1, we passed our golden anniversary a few months back. It does feel as if it has been longer, in a good sense. I can barely remember the time when I was not happily married to you.
Happy anniversary, honey! Have I told you lately that I love you!?
1 I am not sure if “in war, each year counts for three” translates into English correctly. Not that I’m comparing marriage to war, God forbid 🙂
