I'm looking for some advice. What should a man consider getting his wife for an anniversary present where the situation is this:
The anniversary in question is their 30th.
He'll be away on a business trip that week.
He invited her to join her after the conference, where they could tour the Grand Canyon and spend a few nights in beautiful and romantic Sedona... but she turned him down.
He also suggested they attend a weekend music conference together a few weeks ago, and she turned him down for that, too.
Their low-sex marriage crossed in to a sexless one about nine years ago.
In that nine year period there were two 12-month stretches of zero sex, not counting the three year drought he is in now.
Whenever she sends him real estate links to homes in to which she'd like downsize once the kids are out of the house, his main though is "better go a bit smaller so you can afford it on your own once we are divorced".

Does she give him anything for the anniversary? If he does, give an equivalent gift. If she doesn’t, just ignore the anniversary. If she complains, point out the opportunities she turned down and point out that gifts should go both ways since the marriage includes two people.

jim44444: hmisssunnybunny not only did andie delete her existence here she also deleted her tumblr account. Maybe her hubby found her online postings.

solodriver: I'm sad andie is gone too. She reached out to me when I first joined the group at a time when I was really sick, and talked to me everyday until I was well again and shared a lot of her stories with me.

isthisit: Apologies for being a techno numpty- can anyone help me to send a PM? When I choose the member as a recipient the error message indicating a staff member is required. Eh?
