It was my inlaws 32nd anniversary on Halloween. Niether my husband or I did anything for them. My husband did call, but just talked to his father. Today his mother texted him to say he should be ashamed of himself for not doing anything for them. To me anniversaries are for the people that are in the relationship. I would never expect anything for ours? Do I have a different point of view on this than most? do you do anything for your in-laws anniversary?
not to mention husband has been waking up at 4 and working 14 hr days to help get peoples power back from Sandy.

@clairykoo: I feel the same way as you. It would be weird if somebody did something for us on our anniversary. The only exception would be in 50 years if our children did something special for us.

I don’t do anything for anyone’s anniversary – no card, maybe a phone call to my parents if I’m speaking to them anyway. DH’s parents take him out on their anniversaries, which I think is creepy, but I guess I’m going to be included now too!

I’m not even sure when my in-law’s anniversary is, so nope, definitely don’t make a big deal about it in our house!

I think anniversaries are for people in the relationship, with the exception of landmark ones every 10 years. Is this a unique tradition in your DH’s family?

I will at least call, and sometimes I take them to lunch. They wouldn’t be mad if I didn’t, though.
