i would be upset and very hurt if my husband forgot my birthday... its kind of ironic to read and respond to this discussion .. my birthday was actually about 2 weeks ago. it was on a thursday well from the previous week my husband was counting down the days hed say each day _ many more days until my wifeys birthday... etc etc... or 5 days to go what would you like? etc etc... well the day finally came and he has a screwed up shift at work, the day was hetic and i didnt even get a simple happy birthday.. the next morning when he awoke he rolled over kissed me and said.. i didnt forget i was just misdirected... it was cute and funny and yes all day i was like my husband didnt even wish me a happy birthday, but i new he didnt forget because he talked all week about it,.. if the circusmatacnes were different i would be very upset with him!

This has happened to me many times as my husband is always busy with his work.I used to be really annoyed at first.Now I learnt to just forgive.I am one person who is very particular in remembering everyone's birthday and I make it a point to wish my family memebers and friends.Even when he forgets somehow when I get a number of calls he will get the message, ofcourse he will apologise and try to make up for it.This has happened to many of my friends so now we've decided to start reminding our husbands way ahead.Smart way of tackling their forgetfulness.

That is very tough. It is hurtful to forget someone's birthday especially someone so close to you. In your shoes, I think I would be quite hurt that he forgot my birthday. I can't say it is not pardonable, but if he hasn't even tried to make up for the forgotten day, then I would continue to feel very bad about it. I don't know what you could do, it is his job to rectify the situation. I guess he wouldn't feel too good if you forgot his birthday would he?

I think it's a horrible thing to a husband to forget his wife's birthday...just a joking. In fact,if you understand him much , you will not require much,and to him ,it's the same. so someone must learn to tolerate and forgive,you or him,after all,that matters not so much,and you still have many chances.
