Ben and I have been married 20 years today according to the Japanese government. We don't get marriage licenses there, we just tell them when we get hitched, and I thought it would be a nice day; start of the school year, start of a fiscal year, and in case it didn't work out, we could say it was a joke.
It was a gray Saturday, and we handed the forms to the tired guard at the gate, and went our merry way shopping for kitchen stuff or furniture, I can't remember. Ben had already moved into the apartment, and he needed things, and I remember buying pots and pans made us feel more married than the form bit.
Our wedding was at the end of the month, and I moved in during the weekend following the wedding. Boy, it does feel like just last week.
