Michael: Let's break this down.

Alisha: (SLOW) "It's been three years since I got married to the love of my life!" (REGULAR) "It's been three years since I got married to the love of my life!"
Michael: Then comes the phrase...
Alisha: "Happy anniversary, honey!"
Michael: "Happy anniversary" is said when celebrating the yearly recurrence of the date of a wedding. Listen again.
Alisha: (SLOW) "Happy anniversary, honey!" (REGULAR) "Happy anniversary, honey!"
Michael: All together...
Alisha: "It's been three years since I got married to the love of my life! Happy anniversary, honey!"
COMMENTS

Michael: His nephew, Alex, says...
Alisha: (SLOW) "Congratulations on your anniversary! I didn't think you would make it…"(REGULAR) "Congratulations on your anniversary! I didn't think you would make it…"

For example: a 1st wedding anniversary gift is paper, a 2nd anniversary gift is cotton, a 3rd wedding anniversary gift is leather, and so on.

If it's his or her anniversary I will simply say "Happy anniversary pal! Wishing you the best in your marriage life 🥳(+Emoji) !".Does this sounds "formal" or "friendly"?
