My wife and I are celebrating our 25th anniversary this week. She's getting a new ring set and a cruise. I feel I'm the most blessed guy in the world that I'm married to her.

Anyone else here at the quarter century mark or beyond?

Congrats, Stephen. We are newlyweds by comparison -- 17 years this August.

Scott, you beat me by 2 years. My wife and I will be celebrating 15 years this August. With a trip to a move premier in Hollywood and then a few days in Vegas.

Congrats Stephen!!
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Congrats to all who have managed a long marriage in this day and time. We will be married ten years this Sept. and she is getting a new ring set and I think we're going back to Las Vegas, where I proposed.

When we were making our plans for the cruise, a lot of people looked at us sideways and said, "A Disney cruise?" Yep, we're floating with the Mouse. That because of our first "official" honeymoon was spent at DisneyWorld.

Our friends have said, "Now you realize that there are going to be a lot of young kids." My wife just looks 'em in the eye and say, "Yeah, but they are not ours."

While I wouldn't choose a Disney cruise, if it has a special meaning to you and your wife, than it's a fine choice for a milestone anniversary, Stephen. We take "special" trips for every fifth anniversary -- 5 years was a Hawaiian cruise, 10 years was an Alaskan cruise, and 15 years was two weeks in Hawaii (one each on Maui and the Big Island). We have a couple of years yet to figure out where we will go for our 20th.

Congrats ! If you don't have children of your own, a Disney cruise is a great idea. Being a kid has nothing to do with age. Myself on the other hand... I got so burnt out on the mouse I cringe.

We are hitting #13 this year at Memorial Day. Unfortunately we are in a financial crisis of our own making, so new ring sets are out of the question Posted Image

It's been a roller coaster at times, but you can't beat the ride !

This is the first time we've done anything this extravagant for an anniversary, although we did go to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse last year :-). Most of our significant anniversaries (5/10/15/20 year), I was deployed or getting ready to transition out of the Navy (23 years!)

Hey, fellow HTFer's!

Just got back today from our 3-night Disney cruise. Outstanding experience. We've already decided to go on a 7 day DC for our 30th anniversary. Snorkled for the first time in my life. Even without my glasses, it was an experience I'll not soon forget.

Plus, I gained 5 pounds!

Disney is not just for kids, I tell you....

Glad that you had fun. Get a prescription mask—it makes all the difference.

Congradulations on the mileage! I'm glad snorkeling was a positive experience as well. The last time I snorkled with down in the Bahamas five years ago off the back of a booze cruise where their idea of sanitary practices was throwing the masks in a metal tub of clorox. Needless to say that I spent the remainder of the trip with walking pneumonia.
Best of luck seeing that D.C. trip in a few years down the road!
