Fifteen

rocknrollbride 9 year anniversary

When I tell people we’ve been together for fifteen years, they’re usually either surprised, impressed or a combination of the two. “Yes he was my first real boyfriend”, I say, “No we didn’t go to school together” and “Yeah, actually, I did get married pretty young.”

When you’ve been together as long as we have you find yourself counting on your fingers to work out exactly how many years have passed. Fifteen took me by surprise though. I was just sixteen years old when we first met (although we started dating shortly after my eighteenth birthday because it took you a while to convince me to go out with you!) so that means that on our next anniversary I will have known you literally half of my life… HALF OF MY LIFE! How is that even possible and when did we get so goddamn old!?

AsΒ we celebrate our nine year wedding anniversary today, it feels impossible to sum up our love, our relationship or just how much you mean to me. I’m struggling to find words that can even begin to express my feelings without resorting to clichΓ© or hyperbole, so I choose to keep things simple:

Williams, I love you. I love you so very much. I don’t even want to think about what life would be like without you. Happy Marriversary.

    I know that feeling-married for 14 but known him 20. He loves pointing out that he’s known me 1/2 my life like it’s a good thing (it is, just makes me feel sooo old). It’s a weird feeling when you know there is no escape but you’re ok with that.

  2. Hi Kat,
    We are in the same situation πŸ™‚ known each other since age 16, but we were dating someone else back then. But you could tell there always been some buzz between us πŸ™‚ shortly after we both break up with current partners and started dating each other. We were in heaven and still….11 years passed since then. Looking back the photos always makes is smile how much we changed in all those years. Is not like of you are with someone else and need to hide photos of you because another guy is on it… You know you can check any photo and HE will be on it next you πŸ™‚

  3. We almost share the same Marriversary – we celebrated our second yesterday! (7 years altogether.) April is such a fantastic time to get married. Congratulations on 9 happy years (and 15) xx
