Husband's 30th birthday

My husband is turning 30 next month and is really not looking forward to it. He is telling me he doesn't want to celebrate or even think about it. I want to convince him to have a good time and have a positive attitude because his turning 30 no matter what. How do I do this?

Due to situations out of our control, his last 2 birthdays were not fun so I really wanted to go all out this year but am not sure if he'll get mad or look back and think I glad she did that.

What should I do?

Re: Husband's 30th birthday

  • A friend of mine rented a trolly and it took her and a group a friends to her favorite spots around Chicago, Molly's Cupakes, The Bean in Millenium Park, etc...  The last stop was her favorite bar where the party continued.
  • Is there a fun trip that he would like to do?  DH's 30th is right around the Kentucky Derby.  So he wants to do a trip to the derby.

    Any sports game that he might like that you can get tickets for?

  • There is also stuff on this site such as him riding in a NASCAR vehicle, Air Combat Dogfight , Hot air ballon ride, Indy Drag Race Cars etc.

    It's pricey, but I would expect it to be memorable.

  • Can you afford to take a trip?  My husband & all his buddies turned 30 this year, so a group of us are taking a cruise in a few weeks to celebrate.  We've been planning this for a few years and it's a bit more of a celebration than just their birthdays but it sure made turning 30 easier for them!

  • A vacation is usually a good idea.....  just make sure it's all planned out :D

    Or.... if you don't want to spend the time/money away but still want to have a good time, there's always the really nice hotels downtown you can get a good price on from Maybe stay a night or two in a super romantic room (honeymoon suite?) and take a sunset boat ride on the lake or something. Sometimes it's just the nice, simple things that mean the most :) 

  • Well, why weren't his previous birthdays fun?  Could that have something to do with why he doesn't want to celebrate this one?
