Happy anniversary to my wonderful husband!
Hard to believe that it has been five years since we tied the legal knot at the Zivilstandsamt in Zurich! It feels like it was not that long ago and yet things are very, very different these days.I am thankful that my MIL was there for this and for our church wedding in Columbus the year after. She and my FIL were a bit taken aback that we wanted to marry so young by European standards (I was 23 and Kay was only 26), but after the civil union it was all smiles and joy and quite a few happy tears.Kay also had his own fears about the legal wedding because friends warned him that things would change for the worse, but it’s pretty clear that things have only been getting better and better between the two of us. I love him so much and want to spend as many years on this planet with him as possible.
Next year will be our five year anniversary for the “real wedding” where we finally exchanged rings and started referring to each other as husband and wife in front of family and friends (and not just in front of the government). I’m not sure we will be able to be together because of Kay’s studying, but I hope so.
