Anniversaries

In a society in which the real value of matrimony is often neglected, the greatest wish that we can offer a couple who take this great step is that of celebrating all their anniversaries with the same happiness as that shared on their wedding day.  But what are the names of these important milestones? 

Without a doubt the main celebrations are the 25th anniversary (silver) and the 50th (gold).
