Anniversaries of anniversaries

In my experience, it's hard to find a man who shares your passion for monthly relationship anniversaries.

But maybe I'm wrong.

TresSugar reminds us of the "mensiversary," a term that apparently refers to the 30-day version of an anniversary.

So perhaps some couples really do make a point of celebrating each month they spend together.

A few months ago, I wrote a column about couples who go overboard on celebrations -- savoring lavish dinners for half-birthdays and anniversaries of anniversaries.

My initial reaction? Filling your calendar with makeshift holidays cheapens the specialness of the handful of holidays that matter most.

Then again, maybe I'm just bitter about the abundance of mensiversary gifts my boyfriend owes me.
