It is customary to celebrate a leather wedding after three years of marriage together. This wedding anniversary is called so because the couple should by this time feel good each other, figuratively speaking, the skin itself.
The family for this wedding anniversary has become stronger, but still subject to change, the relationship is still not settled and flexible, like skin. Leather - the material is already much stronger than paper and chintz, is not it? So your family relationships are becoming stronger, stronger. You become more flexible (like skin) - you do not react so sharply to each other's wishes, respect the choice of your beloved or beloved. And it is beautiful!
Skin can be dyed in any color. Also, the color of family relationships depends on how you color them yourself. Also in life - if your relationship is painted only in bright and pleasant colors, then you will live a happy family life, and so that it lasts as long as possible, do not forget to “polish” your feelings to shine!
