Valentine's Day Is Getting Close!

By February 11, 2013

Follow me on:

If you haven't already, now is the time to start thinking about Valentine's Day. You don't have to spend a fortune on a gift, but unless the two of you have discussed letting Valentine's Day pass by without celebrating it, you shouldn't forget Valentine's Day.

We recommend that you not give a token gift, but give your spouse a gift truly from your heart. These stories about romance from Geology.About.com show romance can be found -- even around rocks -- when you truly know your spouse.

Face it, you’ve given the wrong gift once or twice. We all have. There are actually men out there who get ridiculous V-Day gifts, getting them to end up sleeping on the couch.

Avoid the Head&Shoulders shampoo and the Silicone Push Ups- unless you enjoy not getting any on V-Day. The “The top ten BEST and WORST” lists shows you what to avoid (the book “How to Make Love Like a Porn Star” by Jenna Javeson) and which gifts will get you to score ( Half-Day Spa Package) .

My husband and I were together 20 years. No Valentine’s gift. The coming holiday is making me tense. Sad memories. I have a new guy in my life, but I have a feeling he is the same way. Think I’ll hide for the next 2 wks.

Well as an experienced married men. Here is my advice; What about buying a piece of jewelry, almost all women love jewelry even though they don’t confess.

This is going to be my 3rd year that we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with my wife. I have always wanted to give unique gifts to her. But since this year is the year for saving i wanted to give something affordable as well as special. I have found this “designer jewelry website by Aya Azrielant” with moderate prices. You should check it out.

If you have a tight budget for Valentine’s Day gifts, try trading an unused gift card to help fund your purchases. I’m a recent college grad–and until very recently, unemployed college grad :) –who has just started a site that provides a forum for consumers to trade gift cards. You can post a card you don’t want and select a new card in return. I’m hoping the site can be a helpful resource to those who can’t afford to spend a ton of money by allowing them to acquire a gift card they can then use to purchase Valentine’s Day gifts.

Valentine’s Day is one piece in the puzzle of how to fix your marriage. Showing you care; both in the fact that you give your spouse a gift and how well you pick the gift will go a long way to fixing a relationship.

MY HUSBAND AND I ARE GOING TO A THINKMARRIAGE.ORG RETREAT FOR VALENTINE’S WEEKEND…WE DID IT LAST YEAR AND IT WAS PHENOMINAL…
WE LEARNED THAT LOVE IS A CHOICE, NOT A FEELING…AND WE’VE BEEN GOLD EVER SINCE, SO WE NOW DECIDED TO DO IT EVERY YEAR!

Once we were married, my husband decided he no longer believed in Valentines Day. It was not discussed w/me; we were married on Valentines Day weekend & obviously he couldn’t see the symbolism in that & he actually re-wrote the calendar calling our Anniversary on the 12th & Valentines Day as one. The simple truth is we didn’t celebrate our Anniversary either. I told him I was hurt & he said he thought it was stupid to feel that way. Well after 33 yrs. of his way, I decided I had enough of his lack of “emotional intelligence” regarding marriage & our relationship; filed for divorce a yr. ago. It was humiliating & disrespectful to me while he paraded his “new age” philosophys about “dating” vs. “marriage”. He is not a PHD. To me it was the purely selfish attitude which prevailed throughout our marriage which drove me away along with his rightousness to always be right! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY…….Guys!

My husband and I should be celebrating our 25th anniversary this v-day. We won’t be because he filed for divorce a few months ago. It was getting very ugly, I had no money for a lawyer and it was the stay at home mom story. The divorce is on hold at the moment but I feel there isn’t anything to celebrate. I’m still devastated over the helpless nightmare he pit me thru.
