  • Remind him. My husband is a very busy man and I dont sweat things like this. He doesnt do it on purpose, so there's no reason to get upset.

  • You have known this man for years and you knew that this would probably happen. men can be stupid when it comes to this stuff. Mark it on the calendar in plain view. Put it in his online calendar as a reminder with emails scheduled to be sent to him every day for a week in advance if you use something like yahoo. A week prior REMIND HIM. Don't expect him to remember. That way you will not go through this again.

  • It is not a big deal, my anniversary was 2 weeks ago, (5 years) and reminded my husband every day for the last 2 months maybe?, even the nigth before I told him, and he just forgot,,!! It hurts a little, but men aren't as sentimental as we are. Don't go deep in this issue, please!!!,

  • I had our anniversary and a friendly one word threat (it's an inside joke kind of thing) engraved on the inside of his wedding band. He knows that if he forgets the date, he will regret it. LOL He never has forgotten, we are about to have our 9 year anniversary in June. Forgetting dates is not a big deal. He's a man, and it is just a date on the calendar. Now, if he forgets your name while you are having sex, then you might have a problem. LOL
