    If I wanted to say that I have already been together with my girlfriend for a year and that yesterday we celebrated our anniversary, would I say:
    1) Yesterday it was a year together.
    2) Yesterday it had been a year together.
    3) Yesterday was a year together.
    4) Yesterday had been a year together.
    Of course, an easier way to say that would be for example:"Yesterday we had already been together for a year", but I would opt for 2) or 1) from my options. However, I am a bit confused and not sure which one fits better; 3) and 4) sound awkward to me. Thanks! :)

    I don't like any of them – they don't reference who you're talking about.

    Yesterday marked our first year together.

    They could be the answer to "How long have the two of you been a couple?" but by themselves it seems that "together" is saying something about the quality of the "year". Last year was a very together year. That year had its act together. ;)
