Honestly, in this economy, I would say work.  I’m not super-sentimental about dates and such so I would be fine with doing it the weekend before or the weekend after.

the date itself isn’t as important as the sentiment behind it.. I would go the weekend before, or after, or whenever worked for you guys.  Is it something he can postpone? or do early? i dont know what your hubby does.

I think it depends on how much money he’ll make with the job. Honestly, if my hubs could make us a few extra bucks, I wouldn’t be upset about it if it fell on our anniversary. I probably would be at first, but then I’d get over it.

We’re actually celebrating our year anniversary a weekend late because of our work schedules. On the actual anniversary, we’re going to get our fav take-out and veg out for the night to celebrate in our very old-people-with-no-energy way. Then we’re heading off for a weekend after that to really celebrate.

Agree with HotChild.  Better to celebrate the day of and lose the money?  Or use some of the extra cash for a schwankier date the next weekend?

Also, I don’t know what kind of work your husband does, but could turning down this work now jeopardize future work?  I just don’t think it’s that big of a deal to celebrate on a different date.

No, it’s WORK! Work isn’t a choice, ya know?

Then again, I have a conference I have to go to June 20-June 24, and June 20 is my anniversary. Darling Husband is ok with it–it’s the sentiment that counts. And I’d be annoyed if he was annoyed–work pays our bills and I can’t just say no because he wants to have dinner. We can have dinner the next day!

Do what you gotta do to get paid! Especially when you own your own business.

The notion of celebrating your anniversary ON your anniversary is romantic, but not really 100% feasible nor practical…

Can’t you do a special dinner or something on your actual anniversary date and then go out to celebrate the next weekend? I agree with hotchild, won’t turning down work jeopardize his future job oppourtunies?

I would push the celebration to a time when he doesn’t have to work!

Work should come first in my mind! The sentiment will still be there!

Ah, I get ya. I freelance so quite often I’ve been working the day of FH’s and my dating anniversary. We just celebrate the next day and try to have dinner on the anniversary – even if it’s just some takeout and champagne.

I would let him work…You could have a dinner or weekend getaway later or even earlier…or you could go to dinner that night and then do a getaway later…i think that work is very important…

$3K?!  Definitely work!  With our financial situation and the economy the way it is, Fiance and I have rearranged plans for him to make ~$100 (he does some IT consulting on the side)

Book something (do it soon) for another weekend, that way you won’t “forget about it” and it will (hopefully) stop him from taking on work that weekend.
