Anniversaries are among the special occasions that one should never forget in a relationship. It's a mark that on that date, you officially became couples. Hence, if my partner would forget our anniversary, I would really slap him! Seriously. I'm gonna get mad! No matter how busy you and your partner is, when it comes to this kind of celebrations, one should not forget it. I treat this as one big special occasion. Would you also do the same thing or would you do more than what I'm gonna do? To those who had experienced this, what did you do? Did you gave him or her a chance to celebrate it with you on another day? Was it still special? Do share your experiences.:)

I could never be angry if my fiance forgot an anniversary because I have some fairly serious memory problems myself. Heck, it's hard enough even remembering my own birthday sometimes and I have to ask him to make sure I'm right! LOL He's never forgotten though and helps me remember that it's coming up.

My hubby did that only one time. And boy, did I let him have it! He had left for work without saying a word, never called me during the day, and didn't say anything when he got home. By that time, I was boiling mad, and I just lit into him. When I got done with him, he was practically wimpering as he apologized over and over. And he's never done it again. He does not like it when I get mad.

I couldn't really say anything, since we both forgot. I don't mind celebrating holidays on the wrong day, I end up doing it a lot. Sometimes my April birthday is celebrated in June.

Oh, I'm with you on this. If my boyfriend ever forgot our anniversary, I'd let him have it. Fortunately, he hasn't done something like that though he's also forgetful like I am. If it weren't for the reminder on his cell phone he would have probably forgotten one of anniversaries by now. But I don't think it would cause a breakup. I mean, anniversaries are important for me but we should also understand that sometimes we just tend to forget things coz we're so busy. I'll give him a hard time for about a week then maybe we can celebrate it. LOL.

I feel the same way! I would me mad to the point where I would go celebrate anyway. I would expect you to forget little things like forgetting to buy the milk. If you forget our anniversary, you got some serious making up to do. Luckily this hasn't happened to me.

lol good discussion.. i would be amazed if he did remeber our anniversary... but then again he would have a heart attack if i remebered his birthday i am always 2 days early or 2 days late..lol its not big deal he rembers when i have roses on the table when he gets home and then we do something special on the weekend, i dont get mad about it simply because i know we both have very busy lives and i know how much he loves and adores me, he shows and tells me that everyday so we both have swiss cheese for memories but we love each other and thats what counts

I forgot our wedding anniversary last year-it is in November. My husband was TDY for work so he wasn't even home. He called me one day and said he had gotten me some things and sent me a package of goodies, and I was like, Why are you wasting money on me when I don't need anything??? He just laughed and said he was trying to be nice. A few days later when he called to see if I received the package he told me about our anniversary. I felt so bad!!! He just thought it was funny that I forgot and he remembered. Silly me!!

My girlfriend and I both forgot our anniversary, so I couldn't be mad. I wouldn't have really been mad either way though. Dates used to be really important for me, but not so much anymore. It's the relationship that counts, but remembering birthdays and stuff is nice.

My wife is always good for forgetting our Anniversary. For a few years I'd buy a card and sign it then date it. I didnt give it to her till she recalled our anniversary. I had 4 dates on the card. She'd forgotten 4 years. Hahaha. Lately we both forget. Well it's not that we forget it's just not that big of a deal to us anymore. We've been married 29 years now. This year we BOTH forgot about our anniversary. Our daughter reminded us a week later. Thanks for the discussion also. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
