    Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard Forgot Their Wedding Anniversary But Their Excuse Makes Up For It

    "When you are living with gratitude each moment, the dates become irrelevant."

    It seems like Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have been together forever, doesn't it?

    Well, that's because they kind of have. Kristen and Dax first began dating back in 2007.

    They later became engaged in 2010.

    And then the Detroit natives decided to postpone their wedding until California legalized same-sex marriage. The two eventually wed on Oct. 16, 2013.

    Six years later and they're still standing strong by each other's side. Earlier today, Kristen took to Instagram to wish Dax a happy anniversary...despite the fact that they both forgot about it.

    Before anyone scrunches up their face to say, "Who the heck forgets their own wedding anniversary?" listen to her reasoning first:

    We were reminded by family and friends that at some point last week, it was our 5 year wedding anniversary. In truth, neither of us remember which day. Thats because we have been living the celebration of our commitment every moment since. I find when you are living with gratitude each moment, the dates become irrelevant.

    Kristen went on to admit she'll probably never remember their anniversary and it doesn't really bother her.

    To get to wake up next to someone who has put hard work, respectful fights, patience, understanding and gratitude into your relationship is the definition of love. I will never remember the date of our anniversary @daxshepard, and i know you wont either. And thats just one more thing i love about us.

    Did anyone notice she wrote "5-year wedding anniversary" instead of 6? Yeah, turns out she ALSO forgot how long they've been married. Luckily, a fan was there to remind her.

    But that doesn't mean they didn't celebrate. Here's what happened when grandma called to remind them about their relationship milestone:
