Did you remember to send the president and first lady a card this week? You didn't forget their big day, did you?

Yes, although it passed without much fanfare (or a public mention from President Trump and Melania) this Tuesday was the couple's 14th wedding anniversary.

Melania and President Trump said their "I dos" way back in 2005, and Trump's future election opponent Hillary Clinton famously attended their reception at Mar-a-Lago, alongside former President Bill Clinton.

While neither the president nor first lady marked the occasion on social media, that didn't stop well-wishers from congratulating the pair on their milestone.

And Melania did mark the second anniversary of Trump's inauguration this week, calling their time in the White House together "unforgettable."

"A truly great First Lady who doesn't get the credit she deserves!" Trump wrote about his wife on Twitter while sharing her anniversary message.

White House social event historian Jennifer Pickens also marked the special day with a throwback photo of the couple on their wedding day, when Melania walked down the aisle sporting a strapless Christian Dior dress.

While the first lady rarely gives interviews, she spoke out about the state of her marriage last year in her sit down special with ABC News.

Melania spoke openly about the president's rumored affairs - calling them "gossip" - and also shot down concerns about their marriage.

"Yes," she said, "we are fine."

But Melania admitted that putting up with the constant speculation about her marriage was not easy.

"It's not always pleasant, of course. But I know what is right and what is wrong - what is true and what is not."

And insider sources hint that you shouldn't believe everything you read about the First Family's "troubled" relationship.

In White House insider Cliff Sim's upcoming book, Team of Vipers, he hints that Melania and Trump are much happier than the tabloid stories make out, and even suggests Melania is "protective" of her husband.

Of course, Melania has already spent much of her husband's first time away from the White House and her husband, while looking after their 12-year-old son Barron as he attended school in New York.

There's no telling what the next few years - or the next election - will bring for the First Family, but after 14 years they're still going strong.
