    My FI quite possible has the worst memory. My B-day is Friday August 22nd. We had been talking for a long time about making that our legal day and then going to San Francisco to my favorite resturaunt Butterfly, and then possible to a show. And we would obviously stay the night becuase it is an hour a way and we like to drink with dinner!

    Yesterday FI tells me that he has planned for all his boys to come into town to go shopping for there wedding attire and then they would have a boys weekend.

    So tonight I tell him that my feelings were hurt because he forgot all about my B-day and planned this whole boy weekend thing. Then he tells me he is sorry, but I should have put it on our calendar like its my fucking fault. UGGGGhhhh men,

      omg. what a bummer!! you'll have to let him know that he has some serious making up to do.

      i don't know what "put it on our calendar" means for you... but i was tired of dealing with this same sort of thing, so i went to target and got a $15 white board that fixed the problem! it has 3 different sections: calendar space- where you write in the date & any planned activities, blank white board space for notes, and a corkboard section to tack on important papers. PLUS- the whole things magnetic. it's hanging right next to the front door & is wonderful!!

      maybe something like this will help you keep your plans.

      best of luck!

        i'd make him plan everything now. tell him your expectations and have him make it up to you by planning legal day, picking a super nice restaurant and booking the hotel.

                  oh man that sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he definitely has some making up to do. those were big plans that he forgot about.

                  however, i've heard from most married women, that it doesn't change. they will continue to forget and forget and forget...

                      OMG I sooooooooooooo feel your pain. My DH tells me to email him things so he can put me in his outlook calendar. GRRRRR "If its not in my calendar it doesn't exist" Those words have started many tiffs!
                      He is gonna have to go way above and beyond to make up for this. And why can't he reschedule his plans with the boys? Helllo wifey comes 1st!
