Since you have been married (and if you’ve had a birthday since), do you celebrate your birthday dinner with just your husband or with your parents, siblings, etc as well? Usually my parents would take me and my (at the time bf) out for dinner on my Birthday. This year, now that we are married I was thinking my Birthday dinner would just be me and my husband. I’m curious what you all do?
I love my family dearly. I am now thinking that maybe the night after my Birthday we can have a big family dinner.

we usuaslly have a family dinner, and then on the actual day of my birthday just my hubby and I celebrate sometimes with a couple of friends.

I always do multiple dinners. One with family, one with friends and one with just Fiance and me.

For my birthday back in Oct., my parents came down and we all went out to dinner (me, my husband, my parents and my brother), and then my husband and I had a birthday dinner with just us.

Usually it is just me & my partner, sometimes I do dinner with friends. However, I am not close with my mother — if I could just do something with my dad I would, but that is not the way the cookie crumbles.
If you want to do something with your family but have some intimate birthday fun with your partner, I think having a big family dinner the day after would be fine.

Well I’m 13 and my mom and brother don’t live with me and my dad works all the time like literally he spent like only 2hrs wit me this month and to make it worse he just told me to my face Im taking my second job off and when you get home from school I’ll be home at dinner which is like at 7:00 for me so I’m pretty much having my birthday with out my parents sence I was 2. But I’m used to having my dad and mom say o sorry I can’t see you this weekend or sorry I have to work all day tomorrow. I barley see my brother and sister at all my dad is going on a cruse 3 days after my birthday what a dad he is right. But usally for my birthday I Han out with friends or have my own little birthday party at home I go to the store really quick and buy one of those little birthday cakes and a candle and put on happy birthday on my iPod and listen to it when I’m blowing out my candle and maybe watch tv and watch a movie or go to the movies or whatever I feel like doing I have a whole day off might as well spend it having fun and not wasting it because our alone. Or if you have a husband then have fun it your birthday so party

My parents are divorced. I often have a dinner at dad’s, mom takes me out to eat and I go out with my Darling Husband to my favourite German restaurant. It turns out to be a weekend long even.

I say do whatever you want, but if I had parents nearby that I got along with, I would certainly want to celebrate with them. I haven’t seen my parents on my birthday since the 80s! And I am only in my 20s. :/

If my family offers, yes. But I don’t think I need to celebrate with any of then necessarily. I guess since I’m an adult we don’t treat birthdays as very special. That’s just my family though.
