My husband and I have decided to renew our vows at 10 year anniversary 2 years from now. I know that is a long time away but I am in the research stage and finding out what is appropriate and what is not. I have read a few responses and that have said that 10yrs is not a milestone, but for us that will make 16yrs of being together. Over our 16 yrs we have had our share of ups and downs and we want reaffirm our commitment to each other and our family. We did not have a big wedding and he has always felt that this was his fault. I have been reading various site and I came across something that said we do not have to renew on our actual anniversary, is this true?
