I wouldn't be upset, I forget sometimes too. And really, you can hardly expect him to be the one to organise something when you've done it every other year. Men are not mind readers, how was he supposed to know you weren't going to do it this year? If you wanted him to do it this time you should have said. It seems pretty silly to just expect him to know.

I wouldn't be. I forgot our second anniversary. We have been together 11 years so at this point in our relationship, it's not important, especially considering our daughter turned one three days before.
we don't really celebrate these things, especially not valentines day, we would just waste money on 'stuff'. As we both don't really put it as a high priority, neither of us can get upset if the other forgets.
I figure as long as you always treat each other with respect and love and give each other enough attention in general, there's no need to wait for a set date to celebrate your relationship.

It's a hard one because anniversaries have different levels of importance to each person. We don't celebrate any birthdays or anniversaries but I quiz him from time to time when our wedding date was and he remembers

Probably not. I forgot our Anniversary once. DH came home with flowers, some nice lingerie and a bottle of wine. I had NO IDEA it was our anniversary. I felt pretty rotten too.
If it was my birthday is be annoyed though.

It was my sisters 8th wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago and they both forgot.
My best friend has the same wedding anniversary as my parents and I text her to congratulate them and they had also both forgotten.
So he's not alone....

No i wouldn't be upset. We don't celebrate it or do anything special or give gifts or anything.
Its not a big deal around here

Personally, no I probably wouldnt because we are not really an anniversary type of couple, but if you are upset I think thats perfectly understandable and im sorry he forgot

I did that last month! It was our 4th anniversary I was changing DD's nappy and DH comes in an goes "happy anniversary!" I had the blank stare and "oh ya happy anniversary!' Hahaha we just laughed it off, didn't do anything special either.
Maybe you and your hubby can do something special when you have a good day or a day off or whatever, I am a firm believer in doing romantic/nice things randomly instead of pushing it in on the designated day.
