Sometimes it's hard to know what is motivating someone's actions, especially on an important day like your wedding anniversary.

Some men just don't pay attention to significant days, like anniversaries, birthdays or Valentine's Day. It's just another day to them.

There are a lot of reasons why a man could feel that way. Some have to do with feeling obligated to give a gift or do something romantic. Some men are very shy about being romantic. Some men are private and don't openly show their feelings.

And for some men, they believe they are showing their love and care for you by working hard and providing for the family.

Everyone is different. That's what makes relationships so interesting. When you understand your needs and those of your spouse, then you can understand his behaviors much better.

Have you had a chance to discuss your feelings regarding your expectations for your anniversary in a calm and relaxed manner?
