ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma came from Kimberly and it’s about today – Valentine’s Day. Here is his email:
Hi Jaime. My question is about Valentine’s Day. My husband and I have been together for about 14 years. We have friends who just got married about a year ago and they’re all about Valentine’s Day. They go away for a weekend together to celebrate, buy each other presents, and my husband and I laugh about it. We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day anymore. Like I said, we’ve been together for a while. You can give yourself a card, but that’s about all. I feel like Valentine’s Day is more about new couples than couples who have been together forever. What do you think? Thanks very much
It’s interesting. When I received this email about a week ago, I did a little survey at the office. One of our EAs, Donna, said she and her husband like to hang out somewhere fancy that they would never go to all year round. My colleague Alex said he and his wife would get into it when they could because life is busy, they have two kids, two jobs and they know they love each other so it’s all good. My honey and I are more like Kimberly and her husband. We’ve been together forever, so a card does that really well for us.
And you? Do you think you should celebrate Valentine’s Day even though you’ve been together for a long time? Would you be upset if your sweetie didn’t do SOMETHING that day, or would you be okay? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
