There are a large number of marriages being solemnised today. Some say its going to be the record number for this year, surpassing even the other special days like Feb 14th and May 5th.
One of the main reasons people selected today was that it would be easy to remember. 20-05-2005. Yea, that looks pretty easy. But considering the number of fancy dates around, how can we be sure that one would remember this date. Especially when such dates are unique only when the years are added to it.
If selecting such dates were to ensure the gift from the spouse every year, then I feel a more appropriate date would be something that has a special meaning globally...like Feb 14th....in such cases at least the TV commercials would ensure that the spouse remembers the date. But then, you get to loose the valentine day's gift.
So if you wanted to have the best of both, maybe some other day that you are sure won't entice a gift from your spouse normally should be selected. How about the National holidays? But National Day doesn't sound romantic right?
So, what is the most appropriate date?
