What does it mean when a husband doesn't wish his wife happy birthday, and not because he forgot about it, and wasn't angry at her either.

My thoughts are that he doesn't really love her, or just doesn't care. I realize that there may not be an answer, but I find it really cruel to not wish your own wife a happy birthday. No birthday card or gift either. :o(

As an optimist, I would hope he's planning a surprise. My husband did this once because he was embarrassed that he had no money for a gift. It was upsetting!

This happened to a good friend of mine. She did ask him, and his response was, he had no excuse for it, and later that day went out and got a card and a gift, but she was so upset that she didn't accept the gift, because she thought it was just an after thought. He also knew it was her b-day. Can't figure it out, I feel so bad for her.

Time to find a new husband or unless you're the forgiving type, then get over it.

Or, no husband. Lol. I'm sure she will eventually get over it, with time. She's just trying to make sense of what happened, and is deeply hurt by it. It's hard to get over when you are hurt by someone you love.

He's either a Jehovah's Witness or doesn't think wishing someone a happy birthday has any particular meaning.

He's not a Jehovah's Witness. I think he just doesn't care to recognize he wife's b-day for some reason. How hard is it to wish your spouse a happy b-day ? There's something going on with him, that is a mystery to me, and his wife.

Sorry,but if he couldn't say "happy birthday" to his wife,there is something more serious going on. Gifts are not necessary,but not acknowledging it?!?!?!
