Interestingly enough, Teoh Diane, 24, and her boyfriend of four months share the same sentiment as Oon. While the young couple are not against the celebration, they do not practice it. “Monthsary is a tricky little thing. Some couples choose to take a more serious approach and commemorate their love for one another by having a monthly remembrance,” Diane said.
“Personally, I think the celebration is unnecessary. To put so much emphasis into a single event to encapsulate it would be missing the point,” she added. “Love is so much more than that and it should be celebrated every day instead of making it a monthly remembrance.”
By the end of the day, regardless of whether you agree that monthsary is a positive celebration that encourages couple to appreciate each other more or a negative one that reduces the significance and value of being in relationship, let us hope that the day where weeksary, or worse, daysary is celebrated will never come.
