Default MWI and RWI: Mini anniversaries

RWI= Reconnected While Incarcerated

I knew my husband before he went to prison, but we had lost touch for ten years before I found him again. As such, in some ways, at least for the purposes of this thread/poll, I feel like I would identify more here.

You know how most couples have those mini anniversaries? Like the day they started dating. The day they became exclusive. I don't really have those, and I'd imagine a lot of MWI relationships don't have those either.

M literally wrote saying he loved me a couple of letters before he asked me to marry him. As we are RWI not MWI I did accept then, though my unusual circumstances of being married at the time to a terminally ill man meant that I accepted for him to be my next husband (my late husband was fine with this.) But we were doing some thinking and wondering WHEN our relationship could be considered as having started. My late husband didn't die until about three and a half years after M told me he loved me. We married 14 months after my late husband died and a LOT of people got on my case about it. Those who were in the know did not.

For he and I, and our families, we consider it to be from he got the letter where I responded that I loved him back. That would make us having been together since late December 2012.

To people who would not be understanding as much, we basically say April 2016 (when my late husband died.)

But this got me thinking: Do you MWI people have any particular dates to use for when you got together? Did you ever literally just decide to be a couple, or was it more of a mutual understanding?
