When anniversaries come around, couples cannot help but look back on the events that transpired and everything they shared in the past year. Every anniversary is a blessing, and everything that happened that got you there is always something to be grateful for.
No matter how happy or sad, or how easy or hard, they taught you to be strong and weather the storms together. They taught you that true love exists, that true love is something that you can achieve, and that true love always wins.
For anyone in love who wants to know the secret of a happy and lasting relationship, just have a look at these beautiful Happy Anniversary messages that show your true love.
Show your true love by being silly together.
Even when you have been married for decades, never stop being silly together. Never stop laughing together at the little things. Life is too short to be spent feeling miserable.
Never stop making your husband or wife feel cherished every single moment. These moments are what you will appreciate and look back on when you are both old and gray.
Show your true love by always being there for each other.
As the years pass, your demonstrations of love for one another should never dwindle. The longer you stay together, the more that you should reassure your husband or wife that you love them and that you are not going anywhere.
It’s so easy to start taking the other for granted because you feel like nothing is going to change, and that you will always have each other. The moment that you start thinking that your husband will always be your husband, and your wife will always be your wife, that’s the moment that you will also begin disregarding or overlooking what they do for you.
Show your true love by laughing together.
Couples who have been together for a long time can attest that relationships are a lot of work. There will be good days and bad days, and there will be happy days and sad days.
Sometimes it helps if you can just laugh away your worries. The problems will not go away, but laughing with the person you love can help you shift your perspective and look at the bright side of things. Looking at the bright side is always a good thing.
Show your true love by praying.
A relationship is often not just about two people in love. It also has God in the center of it.
The couple that prays together, stays together. When God is a big part of your relationship, your faith in each other only grows bigger when challenges come your way. Your love for each other only grows stronger when temptations abound. Your respect for each other only solidifies the more disagreements you have. When you have God in your lives, nothing is impossible!
Show your true love by fighting the right way.
Couples who are truly in love also know the right way to fight. They know how to air out their issues in a loving and respectful way. They know when to sit down together and talk openly about whatever is bothering them.
All couples disagree and bicker, but those who truly love each other will not let their thought, words, and emotions ruin the relationship just to prove a point. They will not fight to hurt or to anger.
Show your true love by always dating each other.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married for a day or for a decade. Couples who truly love each other don’t need a reason or a special occasion to show how much they love each other.
They take each other out for dinner just for a chance to enjoy a fine night together, away from the crazy energy at home and the happy chaos of the children. Couples also need a break from being mothers and fathers and just be two people in love!
Show your true love by helping each other in the house.
Couples who have been together for a long time will tell you that one thing that helps keep the relationship strong is stepping up to help around the house. It’s doing what you can to keep the household running smoothly.
Little things like taking out the trash, fixing a leaking faucet, mowing the lawn, cleaning the bathroom, or making sure that the pantry is well-stocked can make a huge difference.
Show your true love by spending time with each other.
Couples who are truly in love also make it a point to take a breather from their busy and fast-paced lives to focus on their partners.
Not only is taking a break something that everybody needs to avoid feeling burnt out. It’s also a reassurance to your loved ones that they are important. It’s a reassurance that they are still your priority and that you will always make time for them.
You don’t need to go away on a trip or have something special planned. Sometimes you can just sleep until noon and talk in bed, have a long and leisurely brunch, and just be lazy all day together.
Show your true love by going away with each other.
Never stop dating your husband or your wife, no matter how long you’ve been married, and no matter how many kids you already have. True love means whisking them away on a spur of the moment road trip to have a change of environment and just to enjoy some little time together.
True love is discovering the world together and never stopping making new memories together. Just because you have been married for decades doesn’t mean that you have already achieved the best of your marriage. Life is still unfolding, and you and your spouse should always make it a point to make the best moments as often as you can!
Show your true love by staying.
No problem or disagreement is too big when you talk about it with an open mind and an open heart. Marriage will not always be a honeymoon. A lot of things can surprise you or change how you feel about marriage or your husband the longer you stay married.There will be many things that can happen that will test your love and loyalty to each other.
But true love means staying, even when everyone around you is telling you to walk out and leave. Couples who are truly in it for the long haul will find it in their hearts to forgive. They will do whatever it takes to keep the marriage alive and to make the other person happy.
Show your true love by giving gifts to each other.
True love is not about material things. But when you really love someone, you will give them what they want because their happiness is your happiness. Surprise gifts also mean just as much.
They don’t even have to be big and expensive. Any gift or gesture that sends the message that you thought of it with love will be greatly appreciated.
Show your true love by making them a priority.
There’s no greater gift to a husband or a wife than the gift of time. When the demands of your job take too much of your time, it’s a sign that you should take a step back. It’s a sign that you should focus on the things and the people that truly matter.
Every day is important, and every moment is something that you should cherish. Once the moment is gone, you can never take it back. While you have the chance, make as many beautiful moments as you can.
Show your true love through kisses.
Relationships change over time. They will not always be like the first few months of dating, when you just can’t keep your hands to yourselves, and not seeing them for a full hour already makes you miss them.
The longer you stay together with your partner, a kind of natural rhythm falls between the two of you. It does not require constant attention.
Kissing each other, whether a smack or a passionate one, is a reassurance that you love them and want to feel them beside you. There’s no need for a special reason just to kiss. You kiss because you love them, because you think they’re cute, because you are grateful for what they did, or because you are proud of them.
Show your true love by being their rock.
A man and a woman who’s truly in love with each other will face the storms of life together. They will be each other’s shelter from the rain, and they will keep each other safe no matter what challenge life throws at them.
It’s so easy to just run off and bail on each other when the storms are stronger and more tumultuous than you anticipated. But true love is waiting for the storm to pass and doing your best to stay afloat, always together.
Show your true love through communication.
There will be instances when you have to be separated from each other for a long time. When this happens, you need to try harder to keep the relationship loving and strong.
These days, long distance relationships are much easier to handle compared to the time when there was still no internet. Talking and communicating with the person you love is a sign of true love. This sends the message that you take the time out to call them and ask them how they’re doing.
Show your true love through support and encouragement.
Relationships are hard work. You don’t enter into one thinking that it will always be a bed of roses. The longer that you stay together, the more that you will realize that it takes more than saying I Love You to make it work and to make your partner feel loved.
You show your true love by staying with the person you love through the easy and the hard parts, through the happy and the sad days, and through the beautiful and the ugly parts.
Show your true love by cooking for them.
Your language of love should only get better the longer you stay together. You show your true love to them by cooking for them, even when there’s no special reason or special occasion. You tell them you love them by preparing their favorite meal and cooking it with love and affection.
Show your true love through touch.
If you want to show your true love, you can do so by the gift of touch. Giving your partner a pampering and luxurious massage lets you be intimate with them just with your touch and loving caress. Physical intimacy is one way you can let them know that you are here for them and that you love them very much.
Show your true love doing the simplest things.
The best moments in a couple’s life does not necessarily have to be big and expensive. Sometimes the best moments consist of the two of you together at home, wearing your comfiest clothes, relaxing on your comfy couch, and just watching your favorite shows on TV together. Moments like these can be simple but very meaningful!
Show your true love by being there for each other
Letting your partner know that you will always be there for them is always a good thing. It’s even better when you actually show them that you mean what you say. Give them the reassurance that you are here to stay, and that you will always be there for them come what may.
Those who have experienced loving or being in love can attest that there’s an inexplicable magical connection when you have found the person you’re meant to be with.
The rest of the world simply slips away, and your significant other is your whole world whenever you’re together.
Things are simply easier, sweeter, happier, and more beautiful.
While some people think that the feeling of being in love is only fleeting or momentary, it’s actually a state of mind that can last for many, many years.
There’s just something so special about knowing and feeling that two different hearts are beating as one.
There’s something so incredible about having a deep connection to someone, and about being moved by the other person’s emotions, thoughts, actions, and inspirations.
It’s amazing to think about the deep sense of love, caring, trust, and loyalty of one person for another.
