I don't know, this wouldn't really bother me. I don't feel like just because it's Valentine's Day he has to do something with me. It can be another night, as long as it happens.

Sorry to hear that.  Hopefully you still have a wonderful post poker Valentines Evening.

Give them an inch and they'll take a yard.  In a marriage, some things are not up for debate.  You both need to figure out what those things are and agree upon it.

 Is this something you had both agreed on as important?  It's not like its christmas or your anniversary...it was valentines.

I think her point is, being as he works 2 jobs and plays poker every week with no problems.. that for ONE night...she would like to be his priority, and not come 2nd to the job(s) & Poker.  I think for that one night, he could have dedicated his time to his wife.  Sorry he did that, hopefully he will make it up to you!!

It's a silly forced upon us day, but it is still one day a year we are encouraged to put aside ourselves and do something sweet for the other person. My husband complains about the pressure right up to it but he comes through ( so do I) and when everybody talks about "What did you do, or what did you get" he is proud that I'm not embarrassed or sad with what he did. If he asked me up front if I minded us waiting to go out and eat or have a date for Valentine's I couldn't care though. But just saying something the night of would bother me.

I agree. Valentines is the same day every year. Lol
I'm wondering does he do things any other times of the year? Some men don't so this one day they should step up.
In 18yrs. my husband never missed a Valentines but he also spoils me all year round. Valentines is usually something small? Or nothing but a card&chocolates. If he missed next year,I'll forgive him since we probably went on a date the week before?
