We're talking about all kinds of post-wedding-y goodness on Offbeat Home: marriage, honeymoons, relationships, etc. Last week Homie Cassandra told us about her and her husband's awesome "relationship summits" that they hold every year on their anniversary:

So for our anniversary we have our "relationship summit" or our "State Of The Union" address. We talk about where we are and what we want and if changes need to be made. This can be anything from "I don't want children, and if you do I love you and don't want to deprive you of them, so maybe we should part ways" (dating anniversary #2), to "pick up your socks" (somewhere around wedding anniversary #3 or 4), to "I see recurring patterns that cause you suffering. And even though this isn't about me, I don't want to get to old age and still see you suffering. Will you please think about getting some counseling, for the both of us?" (last year).
