- Wedding: June 2011 - Sydney, Australia
Wishful thinking, S&C hubby!
As much as I’m not a fan of Valentines, you’ve gotta keep the romance alive!!

@simpleandchic: Yea, I have NEVER heard of that before…. hopefully he is joking or trying to throw you off… If not, tell him that one thing has nothing to do with the other!!!! 😉

Not only can he not just skip it, but he has to make it even more special! It’s your first Valentine’s Day as a married couple. That definitely worth celebrating.

Actually, we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day.
You don’t have to celebrate Vday to keep the romance alive. I find it more romantic when my husband randomly brings me flowers than on a set specifici day every year. Or randomly picks me up something because he knows I want it but won’t buy it, etc etc. Just me.
We’re just not that into Vday/Sweetest Day, etc

What do you expect him to do? I guess, what did he used to do when you were just dating? We don’t really celebrate valentines day…my husband gets me flowers every year, but nothing major.

I’m not married yet, but we don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. We totally see it as a commercial holiday and ways to “steal” money for people. We will celebrate our love and being together on a completely random day.
Good luck though if that’s what you really want to do.

What did you guys do before you were married? For us we arent celebrating V-day because 1 week later it will be our 6 month-aversary so we are going to celebrate that instead. Simply tell him that Valentines day is just an excuse to celebrate each other and your relationship. Tell him he doesnt have to get you anything but planning a nice evening out would be perfect.
Agreed with @jaguar: you gotta keep the romance alive! 🙂

I sort of don’t like Valentine’s Day, I think you should show your love all the time, not just one day because Hallmark says so.

@simpleandchic: Valentines Day can be overrated sometimes but there is nothing wrong with celebrating your relationship/marriage! Why don’t the two of you have a date night and go out to dinner?

He is mistaken. Marriage is not a free pass to end courtship.

Same here-except that occasionally my husband will decide to do Valentine’s Day. -A couple of years ago he did it BIG and sent roses to my work, when I got home he had sent a Pajamagram to home, too! Totally Shocked Me!! But generally he doesn’t like the “Hallmark Days”-telling him he has to do something THIS day. He usually just does something on different days and surprises me. OP-
Hopefully he is bluffing-or he just rather do special things on “regular” days.

I am going to be the odd one out here and say I LOVE valentines day! And while I do agree that it is a commercialized day and that we don’t NEED a specific day to remind us to show our love but hey, what can another excuse to shower eachother in love hurt? Being married doesn’t change the need to shower eachother in love. Infact, it means you need to do it even MORE! We aren’t going to do anything big this year because we are saving money for the wedding but you better believe next year will be a big one!

We’re not doing anything on that day because every potential activity is going to be SWAMPED with couples. We’re staying in, watching a movie, and probably ordering takeout. However, we’ll probably go out to celebrate on either the 13th or the 15th.

@Gerbera: ditto…we are the same way too. I have friends who have anti-valentines day about a couple weeks after v-day *laugh*
