    I would be upset too, I think after being married for that long you are entitled to a night where you spoil each other.

    My DF forgets his families birthdays all the time but he remembers my birthday and our anniversary and if he did forget I'd be devastated.

    This would has never happened on our anniversary because I always talk about it days or weeks beforehand and always discuss what we will do to celebrate.

    If I didn't mention that it was coming up to him and waited to see if he remembered by himself I almost feel like I could be setting myself up for a fall iykwim and I would hate to spend the day sad.

    I'm sure he would remember himself anyway but it's just something we've always talked about in the lead up.

    No, but only because my husband is hopeless with dates. He doesn't know his mum and dad's birthday, sometimes he gets our children's birth dates mixed up.

    Not really but we don't celebrate our anniversary with gifts or anything. In fact this year we both remembered when my dad dropped by and mentioned it :-0 If it was usually celebrated like a birthday then yes, I would be. But in our relationship it's not a big deal on the day. We always go out to a fancy restaurant for dinner but that's usually been booked many weeks in advance so it's the dinner we look forward to and remember rather than the actual anniversary IYKWIM.

    No I wouldn't but we both forgot our 2nd anniversary this year. My DH has only just started to remember my birthday, he would have no idea of our wedding date. He also swore to my best friend over Christmas that DS was born in March - he was born in January and it was only a week until his birthday

    I wouldn't be upset because we both always forget. Plus our wedding anniversary isn't that important to us - we prefer to celebrate the anniversary of the day we got together.

    I do think you have the right to be upset if this anniversary is important to you and you usually celebrate it. However I don't think you have the right to get upset with him for not organising something if you are the one who usually does it - how was he supposed to know that the status quo was changing suddenly this year?

    IMO you need to be completely transparent & let your DH know what you would like in order to feel special. Some guys just don't have a clue about romance and need a little help.

    You poor Darling


    I cannot lie, I would be upset but would also be thinking that now he is aware of it he can make it up to you in a MASSIVE way. Fingers crossed sooo hard that he has lifted his game and made your day.

    Happy Anniversary from me for what it's worth

    I wouldn't be upset as hubby and I are both hopeless with dates. I can't crack at him too hard for forgetting something as he will give me double the crap next time when I forget. And I can't be cranky at him when he's pretty darned good around the house with cooking, cleaning, looking out for me in general etc.

    Perhaps you could organise a date with hubby and you guys can laugh about how he is getting forgetful in his old age?
