I will never tire of loving you with all of my heart. Happy 15th anniversary, love.”

Here’s to more anniversaries to come. I love you!”

17. “I admit that when I was young, I tended to romanticize marriage. I imagined constant happiness, always giving each other flowers, and vacations every month.

Happy 15th anniversary, my love; I’m proud of us for making it this far. Here’s to many more years of adventures.”

18. “It’s been 15 years since we exchanged vows and said, “I do,” and yet it feels like we never went past the honeymoon phase.

When you give me your signature bone-crushing hug before we leave for work, I know that whatever challenge I may face that day, I can overcome it. I love you and thank you for always encouraging me to be the best version of myself. Happy anniversary, love.”

19. “Some people like to doubt our commitment because we got married in our 20s. They think we’re reckless, impractical, and that our love will be short-lived. One of the many ways we are so alike is that we never back down from a challenge; now here we are, 15 years into our marriage, stronger and more in love than ever. The past 15 years have been the happiest, most exciting, and most fulfilling years of my life. Thank you for loving me and letting me love you. Happy anniversary, darling.”

20. “You are my best friend, partner, soulmate, and guardian angel. You are everything that I want and more. Even 15 years into our marriage, I can’t believe how blessed and lucky I am that you love me just as much as I love you. It’s true when they say that marriage isn’t easy; the ups and downs are part of the package. I’m thankful that we have the strength and courage to get past the hurdles and stay on pace. Happy 15th anniversary, my love.”

21. “15 years ago today, I declared to the world that you are my choice. In front of our friends, family, and God, we made our promises and solemnized our commitment. Today, on our 15th anniversary, I would like to reiterate some of our promises. I promise to love you, support you, and respect you in the way that I’ve learned you like best. I promise to be there for you through the ups, downs, and the rolling in between. And I promise that whatever comes our way, we will face them together. I love you, sweetheart. Happy anniversary.”

22. “Every day, I thank God that I met you. Since the day we met, I have not stopped thinking about you, loving you, and being grateful for who you are. Never change, love; you are perfect just the way you are. Happy 15th anniversary. I can’t wait to see what God has planned for us.”

23. “I have spent weeks trying to come up with the perfect combination of words to sum up the past 15 years of our life. Time and time again, I fail. I have come to accept that our love exists beyond words; to describe it with the most elaborate and literary prose still comes up short. I hope you continue to love me and let me love you long enough that I finally figure out how to write about our marriage and do it justice. Just warning you, though — that might take at least another 50 years.”

24. “I grew up listening to Neil Sedaka’s You Mean Everything to Me because that was my parents’ favorite song. Even as a teen, I never fully grasped the meaning of the lyrics. I never told you this, but the longer we were married, the more I started to understand the song. You are my world, my angel, the answer to my prayers — you mean everything to me. I love you so much. Happy 15th anniversary!”

25. “People typically begin their quotes with, “It’s so hard to believe that we’ve been married this long!” But for me, it’s easy to believe. Especially after we decided to attend marriage counseling, being with you has been so fun and effortless; over the years, we’ve developed healthier coping strategies and learned how to work better together. Happy 15th anniversary, sweetheart! I can’t wait to celebrate more anniversaries with you.”

26. “To quote one of your favorite books, I am completely, perfectly, and incandescently happy. The past 15 years of our marriage have been a rollercoaster, to say the least. Everything is worth it, though, if it means coming home to you at the end of a long day and sleeping in your arms. Thank you for sticking by my side, loving me for who I am, and helping me be the best version of myself. Happy anniversary, my love.”

27. “Happy 15th anniversary, love. I’ve spent a lot of time contemplating how we should commemorate this important occasion. You know my perfectionist tendency — I wanted this celebration to be memorable, to the point where it was starting to make me anxious. However, I came to the conclusion that I shouldn’t be stressing too much about this; we have the rest of our lives to celebrate. We have all the tomorrows, next weeks, next months, and next years. I love you so much, and I know the future is bright for you and me.”

28. “Falling in love is automatic but staying in love is a fight and a choice. I will forever choose to fight for us, to keep our commitment alive and strong. I will forever choose you. Happy 15th anniversary, darling.”

29. “Emily Brontë said it best: “Whatever our souls are made of, yours and mine are the same.” Before I met you, I used to think the concept of soulmates was cheesy and corny. However, as we got to know each other better, and eventually fell in love, I knew that we were meant to be. 15 years into our marriage, we continue finding ways we are compatible and learning new things about ourselves. I love you, my dearest. Happy 15th anniversary.”

30. “According to Dr. Seuss, “You know you are in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” I learned that was true pretty quickly when we started dating; I couldn’t fall asleep because I was too busy thinking about you. Now that we are married, I find it difficult to sleep alone. You bring me a sense of comfort, peace, and contentment, that I cannot find anywhere else. I love you. Happy 15th anniversary, love, and here’s to many more.”
