    My partner and I just celebrated our tenth anniversary together! We gave each other cards and it was funny because we both wrote essentially the same thing to one another. "Ten years have passed, but it still feels like we just met." Even though we are having a really rough time financially, we've managed to keep positive and lean on one another. I think we help make each other better people.

    To all the RJers I also want to say "Thanks!" This site really helps me keep things in perspective and be thankful for the life that I have, no matter what difficulties come along.

    Congrats and I totally understand the card thing. If my bf and I ever reply to the same person about something we always end up finding out that we wrote essentially the same thing back to them.

    Hey congratulations! At ten years we changed our rings to gold bands.

    We also went out shopping. This is a tradition of ours. Every year we go out and buy something together that carries sentimental weight about that year.

    We found a 19th reproduction, framed; a black and white drawing of a lighthouse in France on a rocky point of land. Bill looked at it and said,

    "Our love can weather any storm."

    It hangs in the livingroom.

    -Doug

    This thread made my day. The relationship cynics talk a lot, but love speaks loudly enough for itself.
