When my ex left, I celebrated my anniversary with my children. They are the best thing that came from the union. I want them to know I do not regret the marriage, the marriage gave me four children and now 2 grandchildren!

Although I think you have far more issues more important than your anniversary, the advice to spend it with your children is the right one. I'm divorced as well. My husband after 15 years of marriage decided that he had been miserable and that the Gospel and I were the problems in his life. After a few years, I was able to realize that I had a great marriage. We held temple recommends, attended regularly and I was faithful to my covenants. His issues, were not my issues. His life has spiraled out of control, and our children are the ones most effected. I still love him, but he isn't interested in that, and I've been able to make a very happy life with what I have to deal with. Eternity is a long time, and he still has the opportunity to repent and get his life back together. Will it happen in this life? Probably not, but then, I've long ago forgiven him. Next year would be our 40th anniversary, and I will spend it with my kids. They are still our children, they will be until or unless Heavenly Father decides otherwise, and it is a milestone for them in a way.
