Many people typically include a short piece of marriage advice in anniversary wishes for their friends, be it solicited or otherwise. Feel free to make it as amusing, entertaining, or sarcastic as you want.

  1. Marriage is like a roller coaster—it has its ups, downs, and loop-the-loops. Hold on tight, scream as loud as you can, and enjoy the ride!
  2. Happy anniversary, you two! When in doubt, “Yes, dear, you’re right” is the correct answer to any question.
  3. Happy anniversary! Always remember: a happy spouse is a happy house.
  4. Remember, for a successful marriage, it’s not always about who’s right; it’s about who’s less wrong.
  5. Marriage is like a fine wine—it gets better with age. At least that’s what they tell me. I don’t drink wine.
  6. People always that married couples are stronger together. That’s true most of the time, but sometimes, you should give each other space to collect yourself. Especially when the other person refuses to admit they’re wrong.
  7. A strong and happy marriage is all about compromise—like where to hide the candy stash, what to get for takeout, and who does the chores.
  8. Marriage is a marathon, not a sprint. So pace yourselves, take frequent water breaks, and don’t forget to have fun along the way.
  9. Happy anniversary! Never forget that a healthy marriage is like a good workout—sometimes, all you need to do is to sweat the small stuff.
  10. Marriage is like a 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzle—you need tons of patience, persistence, and attention to detail. It’s normal to occasionally flip the table in frustration.
  11. The secret to a happy marriage is laughter, love, and a good pair of earplugs to sleep through each other’s snoring. Happy anniversary!
  12. Happy anniversary! Marriage tip: Keep each other on your toes by surprising each other with a new joke, a spontaneous dance party, or an errand you forgot to run.
  13. Remember, marriage is like a garden—it requires constant care, attention, and the occasional weeding. It’s tiring work, but when the flowers are in bloom, you’ll remember what it’s all for.
  14. For a long-lasting marriage, always say “I love you” regardless of what’s the situation. Even when you’re just arguing about whose turn it is to do the dishes. (If you’re lucky, it’ll get you out of washing the dishes!)
  15. In marriage, you must have a sense of humor—especially when you accidentally forget to water your spouse’s houseplants and they all wilt.
  16. Marriage is like a rollercoaster—the ups and downs are part of the ride, so just enjoy the view and hold on tight! Bring a sick bag just in case.
  17. Happy anniversary! A resilient marriage is built on trust, communication, and the priceless skill of laughing at each other’s corny jokes even if they’ve said it seven times already.
  18. Always remember to say “please” and “thank you” in your marriage – and “I’m sorry” when you forget to say “please” and “thank you.” There are three words that are essential to any marriage: please, thank you, and I’m sorry.
  19. The secret to a happy marriage is to be best friends first, partners in crime second, and each other’s number-one fans third.
  20. Marriage is like a good novel—some chapters are more interesting than others, but it’s the whole plot and the character development that really matter.
  21. In marriage, the key to happiness is finding joy in the little things—like immaculately brewed hot chocolate, an organized closet, and a well-timed pun.
