Luckily he's such a sweetie so I don't mind that I got him a card/pressie for our 9th and he didn't. He didn't forget, just didn't come up with the goods.

Is it my conjugal duty to get everything I can out of it? Cups of tea/him get the dinner together tonight/advantages in future arguments - I've got a good memory grin

YABU. You say you don't mind and yet you intend to use it against him.

Odd.

ooohj you must. if not you are failing in your duties as a wife.

I would milk it for at least a year and then hopefully next year you will get an amazing gift!!

Milk it for a day or two - cups of tea and cooking etc, and see if you can get him to organise a meal out for the weekend maybe?

Don't bring it up in future arguements though, it's not serious enough for that

Milk it for a day or two, then forget it BUT make a note on your calendar. A couple of weeks before your next anniversary....

"Are you off to work dear? Make sure you don't FORGET anything."

"Can you get some milk from the shop...don't FORGET it "

"I'm just nipping out do you want anything?...Ok I'll make sure I don't FORGET"

Or, you could forget to cook his tea/iron his shirt/whatever you normally do for a few days.
That tends to work! grin
