Dear Newlywed Guru,
Last week marked our 2nd anniversary and he forgot. My feelings are hurt and I want to know what I can do so this won’t happen again.
Sleepless in Orlando
Well, don’t lose anymore sleep because in marriage you must pick and choose your battles. Although this has hurt your feelings do not let it become a big issue between you. Men do sometimes seem thoughtless and will forget events and issues that are important to us, but it does not mean they love us any less. Here’s what you can do in the future to help minimize this from happening again. A few weeks before your anniversary, begin leaving small hints for him – bring up how excited you are that you two are coming up on your xxx years of marriage or maybe a love letter recounting how you felt when you first met or try to bring out a something that was a part of your wedding, I think he will get the hint.
Stay in love,
The Newlywed Guru
