January 1, 2000 is our anniversary, wife wanted to get married on Y2K. When she picked the date I was all for it to which she replied "Why do you like it so much? Men usually don't care!"
I said "I will NEVER mess up the 2 things men usually do that get them in trouble. I can't forget our anniversary since its on New Year's Day. I also will NEVER mess up the question 'how long have you been married?' as all I need to know is what year it is. It's 2019, so 19 years."
She called me a typical engineer at that point, everything being 'logical'. I explained that was just being a man, not an engineer.
That's funny. A young couple we know got married on December 13, 2014, or 12-13-14. The wife set the date, and made clear she wanted a day her husband could remember.
What did the young man do for a living? Oh, he's an engineer. And she was already an attorney. Go figure.
