On 5 year increments I like to go on a trip with my wife. This will be our 25th year, and we are already talking about where we are going this time. It is a great way to build a tradition of putting each other first, as well as build lifetime memories.

Well, that is what I suggest. To each his own.

Well, you need to give us a starting point! What does she like? What do you do together? etc...

In example, my wife and I like to golf. She is a single digit from the blues. For our 5th we spent a night at the American Club and hit Whistling Straights and The River Course.

What works for me probably won't work for you.

Simple. Give her half the proceeds from your soon-to-be bestselling book entitled:

"How to Date a Chick for Five Friggen Years Without Getting Engaged"

I want my copy signed.

Get her something that shes always wanted, like a really nice necklace or earrings, a good massage for both of you, which is really awesome, and a wonderful dinner at an awesome resturant.
Either that or an engagement ring~ But only if you want to ~
