Survey: People Who Have Forgotten Their Partner's Birthday

A new survey found 52% of men have forgotten their wife or girlfriend's birthday at least once. That's compared to just 24% of women who've done the same.

Most of those people were able to scramble and do something last-minute though. Only 1 in 5 said they completely forgot.  Everyone else had time to run out and buy a scented candle at CVS or something.

But when guys do remember, they at least SPEND more than women: $164. That's compared to $117 on average. Here are four more stats from the survey...


1.  The average person who does forget a partner's birthday won't just do it once.  On average, it'll happen FOUR TIMES while they're together.

2.  One in five couples have gotten into a fight, because one of them forgot the other's birthday.  And 12% have broken up over it.

3.  36% of us have SAID we didn't want anything for our birthday, but secretly expected something anyway.  The top thing we want from our partner is a nice dinner out. 

4.  You're not expected to plan a party for someone until about seven months of dating.  And the #1 way to RUIN their party: inviting someone they don't like.
