    Default would you be upset if your dh forgot it was your 8th wedding anniversary today?

    My dh did. He only remembered because I said "happy anniversary'' this morning and he looked at me blankly and said ''oh, I thought it was on the 5th?".. nope. and I guess we aren't doing anything special tonight, because it's me who usually organises to go out for dinner, and this year I said nothing and have decided to see if he will organise something but nope. can't help but feel a bit upset.

    Hugs xo

    My DF is the kind of person to forgets dates of family members' birthdays but I'd still be upset if he forgot our anniversary.

    Hope he makes it up to you.

    Congratulations Minchi from one 8th wedding anniversary person to another (mine was last week).

    I'm sorry your DH forgot and I know how my Mum used to feel when every.single.year my Dad forgot their wedding anniversary. Fortunately my DH remembered ours last week, but I must admit I too would feel a little sad if he hadn't. I hope your night turns out better.

    OP I can understand why you are upset. To be honest I used to get upset also. BUT... this year both DH and I forgot our anniversary. I guess now I think that I like to acknowledge it but we can go out and be romantic and overly love each other everyday, in fact I would prefer that kind of treatment everyday rather than just once a year on our anniversary

    That being said, anniversaries are really important for some people. Its ok to be upset, maybe just let DH know that you would like to feel a bit special and maybe he could think about it for the future...

    Yeah i'd be upset too.

    We have a little cross stitch (I dunno what else to call it) that has a little poem and our names and the date we were married so DH can never forgot it hangs above where I sit at the dinner table and he always sits across from me so would see it daily. Maybe that'd help lol

    Yes, I would be really upset.

    Anniversaries are important to me, and we always do something to celebrate. I'd be very hurt if DH forgot.

    Maybe you could get one then about 2 weeks before your anniversary you could make it crooked then when he was around go 'oh goodness this is crooked' then straighten it up and he'd have to notice it then

    Yes I would be upset, but to be honest both dh and I have forgotten at different times. It happens. We have been married over 20 years and really remrmbering anniversary has nothing to do with how much he loves you.

    The best advice I can give is chuck on some up beat music have a shower put on something that makes you feel good. Ring him and if he hasn't organised something, you organise something that you like to do, eg. your fav restaurant or a picnic on the beach/by river etc.

    I wouldn't be hugely upset if DH forgot our anniversary because I *almost* forgot about it last year myself! That doesn't make it right though. DH and I can both be a little bit slack when it comes to celebrating things on certain dates. Usually we'll make up for it by both deciding to do something nice together a month later or so...!

    Hugs. I'd be ordering some expensive takeaway to have with a nice bottle of wine. And chocolate. Optional as to whether you wish to share any of this with your DH.
