DEAR ABBY: My husband and I disagree about when we can celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We were married on June 16, 1974. I believe we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary on June 16, 2024. However, he insists that a child celebrates her first birthday after the child has lived through that first year. He says we must live the 50th year before it is our 50th anniversary — on June 16, 2025. — COUNTING IN TEXAS

DEAR COUNTING: Wedding anniversaries are calculated based on the date of the wedding ceremony. They are not counted based on the 12 months you endured afterward. You shouldn’t have to wait an extra year to celebrate such a monumental occasion. If he’s not ready to celebrate, ask him to simply say so, but do not let him use this argument as an excuse.
