Renew your vows? Do you have kids? They could be part of it.

I have the perfect idea for you.

Divorce papers.

Save her the time of having to file it herself when she finds out that you have no clue what it will take to make that anniversary a special one.

Well, at least one person said a cruise and another said renewing vows. I thought about the cruise thing but we have a 1 and 2 year old and our only real option for someone to watch them for a week( my mom) is in Texas for the next few months. I might be able to swing some type of surprise with the renewing the vows thing...

Never really been the romantic type and that's what I'm looking for here.

That's the problem. I'm already too damn much man for her every night that nothing else will even come close. :D

Disclaimer that I am not married but I think this is a reasonable suggestion assuming your mom is cool with watching your kids for a week.

You could plan a vacation for the two of you without the kids that happens later in the year when you mom can watch them. If you surprise your wife the plans that you have actually booked over a nice dinner on your anniversary it should still have the same effect.

Having no sitter makes it hard. If you have someone (high school student, teenager of a friend) that could watch the kids for the night, maybe get a nice hotel room, limo for dinner and drinks, perhaps a show of some sort.

If not, go with diamonds, or whatever her favorite gem is!! :thumb:

You may be screwed on getting good advice here, the guys are just giving you shit and I am of no help, I'm about as romantic as Pepe Le Pew...

That does sound like a good idea. Give her the tickets as a gift. Smart man Miles!

Well if you're looking for romance, I'd go with post number 9 and I'd make it a big surprise.

I can tell you one thing not to do. Don't forget until the last minute, and pick up a small figurine, of a dog howling at the moon, at the local drug store.

Combining some ideas here....

Take her for a romantic afternoon with some wine, bread, and cheese. Tell her to dress nice. Pop the question with a new anniversary ring. When she says yes, tell you can't wait another minute, load everything up, and take her to an already planned ceremony to renew your vows.

Write her a hand written letter. Tell her how she makes you feel. It will be between just the two of you so just let it flow.

Make dinner reservations at a nice restaurant. Maybe one you've been to in the past, maybe something new. The important thing is for you to take control and make all the arrangements on your own.

If she doesn't like surpises a few days before the date send her an invitation in the mail so she will know what to dress for.

At the restaurant order wine at the beginning, maybe appetizers. Once you've ordered the entree give her your letter. She'll spend a lot of waiting for her food bawling, unless of course you suck at writing letters.

To make the dinner complete make sure to order dessert, even if she doesn't want any. You can pick something you know she likes and have them put it in a take out container.

The thing is to make her feel you're courting her again. After 10 years it couldn't hurt to make an effort other than just buying a gift.

Yeah, that has been almost 30 years ago now, and the memory is still vivid for both of us. :$2500::$2500:%(/:PPL:

I doubt either of us, at least me, remembers many of the others, near as well.
