Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas and actor Josh Duhamel renewed their wedding vows this weekend to celebrate their one-year-anniversary. (Check out photos here from the first wedding.)
In that one year of marriage rumors have swirled that Josh cheated on Fergie with a stripper. Fergie has stood by her man through those charges saying she doesn’t believe them.
The couple said they were inspired to renew their vows by Seal and Heidi Klum, who according to one web site have renewed their vows every year since they were married in 2005.
But I’m wondering if Fergie was trying to remind her man: Hey! Remember what we promised each other just one year ago!
Michael and I renewed our vows for our 10-year-anniversary. It was very low key with just our family. We did it after Mass one Sunday in our regular church clothes. It was the same priest who married us. I must have been giant pregnant with Walsh at the time. Our anniversary is about 3 weeks before his birth date. I think we felt like in all the craziness of having babies (Rose was just 24 months), it was a nice way to focus on us!
So my question is should renewing your vows be done every year? Should it be saved for 5-year or 10-year anniversaries? Does it help focus the marriage? Does it indicate trouble if done that frequently?
Have you renewed your vows? What did it mean to you?
