DH and I have been married 8 years. We have two boys, 18 mos and 4 (almost 5) years and DH has an 11 y/o girl from a previous relationship.
We got married literally the day I turned 18, at the courthouse, no dress, etc. which is what DH wanted. He wasn't a fan of big weddings at the time.
Now, 8 freaking years later, he has decided that he was an ass to insist on it being that way and is sorry I missed out on the experience, blah blah blah.
So, he wants to have a "wedding" to renew our vows for our 10 year anniversary. He has been mentioning this since our 5 year aniversary, and yesterday said "it's two years away, don't you need to start planning soon?"
My issue is, the whole thing seems stupid. I mean, won't it strike people as odd to have a wedding 10 years after the fact?
We can more than affor it now but I still can't see spending the money on an unnecessary event.
What do you think?
