"NTA as long as you've made it clear to him 🙏. Though, with the wedding, while it's his friend you are both guests at the wedding. I'd argue that could be seen as a joint obligation and you likely should have reminded him about that one."

"YTA for forgetting the wedding. NTA for wanting less reminders." 😲

RamblingManUK | RamblingManUK

"NTA You're not his parent. He needs to learn to manage his own schedule. Online calendars and popup reminders, etc make it incredibly easy to keep track of what's going on in your life. I have the same issues as your husband and I've managed to figure it out. Well, mostly 😂. He needs to have some sort of routine where he reviews his calendar every morning, or whatever works for him. On a side note, could your husband have ADHD? It sounds like his struggles could be beyond the usual 'immature adult' category."
