Thirteen years of marriage later and Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. are still going strong!
On Tuesday, the couple celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary — a milestone that still makes our teenage hearts skip a beat.
The “Buffy” actress commemorated the occasion by sharing a sweet photo from their wedding and a short poem on her Facebook and Instagram accounts.
13 years #happyanniversary “I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me”

Gellar and Prinze — who have a daughter and a son together — first met on the set of the 1997 movie “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and began dating three years later.
And the sun is setting on a very successful #FathersDay Thank you #FreddiePrinzeJr for showing me what #TrueLove looks like. I loved you before children, but that love has intensified. Thank you for making my children the #luckiest

“We had made plans for dinner with a mutual friend and the person canceled,” Gellar told People in 2002 of their first date. “We decided to have dinner anyway and never looked back.”
They tied the knot in Mexico in 2002 — the same year that they co-starred in the live-action “Scooby-Doo” movie.

And while it may seem like Gellar and Prinze hold the magical secret to a happy marriage, the actress has previously said that that’s just not the case.
“God, if I knew, I would write a book and retire,” the actress told MSN Wonderwall in 2013. “I wouldn’t be here right now. I mean, it’s work. You have to work at anything. It’s any relationship in your life. You have to nurture it and take time with it.”
Wishing these two many more wonderful years together!
