Me and my partner's one year anniversary is coming up, and I want to know what kind of limits to set. What do you do for your partner? (In Dollars)
We have always limited to what we could afford. We have been very poor and then very blessed financially through years of effort and good fortune. When we were poor (ie our first anniversary) he gave me a card he made with a dozen magic marker colors, flowers he picked by the road, he made me a lovely dinner....pasta and salad with a Pillsbury bread roll he just baked, and gave me a massage, then ran me a bubble bath, and had a new paperback novel for me to read. It was indulgent and loving. For our 40th, he may fly me to the moon ( literally) or cover me in dazzling jewels on a world cruise, but while it may be amazing. ...it will be no more special then that first wonderful anniversary. It is not the amount of money...but the thoughts, efforts and love that really matter!
