A question for the Mothers!
posted 5/7/2010 4:22:27 PM |
Back when I was Married....My X and I...in our latter years together...almost always had a Debate..about Mothers Day!!!!(yearly)
I Did always get My X something for Mothers day!!! But I did it because I Wanted too!!! Maybe it was because she was the Mother of my Children...IDK?!!! I would buy/build...or Plant her some flowers...just because I could!!! No Holiday had to be present for me to do that!!!! I'm a giver...shoot me!!!
The Debate came...when my Sis In-Laws..Hubby didn't get Her anything!!! (She would always be upset!!!)
My X use to say...that he was Wrong!!!!!
I disagreed!! This was in the Day..when both of our Mothers were still alive!( And so was his!)
His argument was that She (His wife) was not his Mother! That her/his Children Should be the One's that Gave her something for Mothers day..Not Him!!!
Mothers...How do Yall feel about that?
Should Your Hubby Give You a Mothers Day Gift?

Gary always got me something for mother's day but it was usually something that would never overshadow or duplicate what my children would get me..............I never got flowers cause he knew the kids would as part of my present.......so it was something usually unique more geared for a woman that was loved by a man and not by her children.
On fathers day I always bought something for Gary........again unique for him. His own children didn't talk to him for the last few years of his life but my children always did...........
This year I don't know.......my honey did mention taking me out to dinner for mothers day but my daughter wants to.......I may make them both happy and have us all go..........they dont know that the other one wants to take me
we talked about the fact that since I am not his mother nor is he my father that if presents were to be exchanged that they should be more of fun gifts than anything else...........which is why I already have a fathers day gift for him......I ordered him a tee shirt that says It takes balls to play golf like I do.........

I don't think men HAVE to give the mother of their children something for mother's day however it is a nice gesture if they do and women remember things like that. In a way him not giving her something was like saying her being the mother of his children was no big deal to him. If he knew how she felt and still did not give her anything I would have to say he must be a glutton for punishment.

It takes balls to play golf like I do.........

My golf tee says...
I hit two good balls today..
I stepped on a rake (with illustration)

I always got my mom something for Mothers Day. I never got my ex anything, per se. However, I made sure our daughter did. This would involve her having to "work" to earn the money. It was usually something like helping me for an hour in the yard or garden like picking up trimmings I had cut from bushes or something. The money she made from "working" also included all three of us mom going to the restaurant of her mother's choice. I would take her to the store to get the gift and help her wrap it when she was young.
My daughter and her husband are not getting along. The grandson will be four in June and her husband has never acknowledged Mother's Day on his behalf with even so much as a card. I don't expect that to change this year. She will remember it and, shall we say, put it in the memory bank to accrue interest. I usually go up there every spring...not this year. Going into a war zone is not my idea of a good time!

My Dad ALWAYS gets Mom something for Mothers Day because he wants to. Sometimes it's flowers, (he has yet to replace her lilac bush that he mistakenly gave away about 20 years ago
), sometimes he takes her to dinner, and there have been times they went up north for a few days. He always does something for her.

I truly believe that husbands should most definitely recognize their wives on Mother's Day. They are after all the mother of their children...right? Also...is a baby or a child under the age of 12 really going to remember this special occasion? And...what if there is no one else to remember the wife...except her husband? Yep...I feel the husbands definitely need to step up to the plate and remember their wife on this very special occasion. JMO.

I think it would be nice for either spouse to buy each other something on Mother and Fathers day when they have kids.

No one before G ever did anything for me for Mom's day.. as far as partners go that is.. my kids always made me something or went out and picked me some flowers.. so.. yeah.. anyway.. G spoils me rotten and I'm not even the mother of his children.
To answer the question.. no.. a man is not obligated to give a gift to his S/O on mother's day..t hat's a day for her children to remember her.. I'm just spoiled and lucky and loving every minute of it.
