    Wait. You have up to a year after the wedding to send a gift.

    @WestCoast:  What about a wedding card and like, a gift card? To a store he could shop at and still use if in fact the marraige fails. That is kind of a sticky situation. But I think that may be the best way to send a gift that they can either use together, or he could use on his own. Good luck!

    EDIT: If he has told you that the marraige is not going well and he doesnt think it will work, maybe take him out for drinks on you and call it his congratulations on your wedding, or divorce, party?! I have a few friends that would like that a lot better than a gift. lol!

    @WestCoast:  I wouldn’t send a gift or a card, he has told you that things aren’t going well so I think its better to not bother at this point.

    Don’t send a gift yet, he’ll get it and be like “was she seriously not listening to me?” just wait a while longer.

    I wouldn’t send a gift.

    He has told you over the phone that things aren’t going to plan, a gift now would just be weird.

    He knows you are thinking of him – you called him right?
