30 Tips to Stay Married 30 Years: Remember Birthdays and Anniversaries

I was actu­ally plan­ning a dif­fer­ent tip to do next but yes­ter­day was DaWife’s birth­day so all the plans went out the win­dow, which makes this a per­fect time to put up this tip: Remem­ber Birthday’s and Anniversaries.

Granted in these days of smart­phones and var­i­ous plan­ners and Alexa who can remind you of days you’ve for­got­ten this tip seems almost anachro­nis­tic. But remem­ber­ing a day is more than just know­ing what the day is.

It’s actu­ally cel­e­brat­ing said day, show­ing appre­ci­a­tion for the fact that your spouse is there, even if it just mak­ing up a silly song for a birth­day (I rec­om­mend my “Hooray You’re not Dead!” song) to let said spouse know that you’re glad to share the day with them.

And one should always remem­ber that while stuff is cool it tends to just accu­mu­late, it’s time that is the great­est gift as we all have a lim­ited amount of it (see the song above). Give that time to your spouse on that day and if it means some­thing else goes by the way­side, such as post­ing is lite, your pod­cast late or even that the lat­est tip in the 30 tips to stay mar­ried 30 years misses a day, That’s OK too!

Next to your chil­dren your spouse and mar­riage should be of great­est value to you, act accord­ingly, par­tic­u­larly on the days that cel­e­brate them.

I was actually planning a different tip to do next but yesterday was DaWife’s birthday so all the plans went out the window, which makes this a perfect time to put up this tip: Remember Birthday’s and Anniversaries.

Granted in these days of smartphones and various planners and Alexa who can remind you of days you’ve forgotten this tip seems almost anachronistic. But remembering a day is more than just knowing what the day is.

It’s actually celebrating said day, showing appreciation for the fact that your spouse is there, even if it just making up a silly song for a birthday (I recommend my “Hooray You’re not Dead!” song) to let said spouse know that you’re glad to share the day with them.

And one should always remember that while stuff is cool it tends to just accumulate, it’s time that is the greatest gift as we all have a limited amount of it (see the song above). Give that time to your spouse on that day and if it means something else goes by the wayside, such as posting is lite, your podcast late or even that the latest tip in the 30 tips to stay married 30 years misses a day, That’s OK too!

Next to your children your spouse and marriage should be of greatest value to you, act accordingly, particularly on the days that celebrate them.
