The evolution of Valentine's Day in my relationship with the Husband:
Year 1: Fancy romantic dinner (4 courses) in a fancy restaurant, dancing, flowers, jewelry, large box of nice chocolates.
Year 2: Fancy romantic dinner (4 courses) in a fancy restaurant, large box of nice chocolates.
Year 3: Romantic dinner (3 courses) cooked at home by devoted boyfriend, large box of nice chocolates.
Year 4 (Year 1 of marriage): Romantic dinner (Chinese food delivery) ordered from local restaurant by devoted husband, small box of nice chocolates.
Year 5 (Year 2 of marriage): Romantic dinner at Popeye's fried chicken, bag of Hershey's Kisses.
Year 6 (Year 3 of marriage): 1 course pasta dinner cooked at home by devoted husband, fell asleep before dessert.#
OMG I laughed so hard when I read this. It's the same idea in Amy Tan's book (oh... which one??) when she describes falling in love and sharing a double bed and snuggling and by the 3rd year or so of marriage they're in a king bed so that they have lots of room to spread out.

That's funny, but at least you are still getting a romantic dinner!
Yep, this pretty much sums it up!

Funny! Did he at least cook it? Wait till you get to 24.
Ha! I've been married 27 years. I received a card and a big Hershey's Kiss, and felt lucky to get that!
love, just keeps getting better. it's the love you share and not the day that fills the heart
Ummmn, Popeye's chicken??!! I loves me some of that!
For me in the 6th v-Day post marraige had the hubby waking up at 4 and catching an early morning flight for a conference !
aww, but what you lost in romance you made up for in cozy? maybe year 7 is the charm when you wow and romance him.
