    I appreciate that this might be outwith the experience of the majority of STW members……..Wife hits the big Five-O in a couple of weeks. She asked me what I was arranging as a celebration. Assuming that wimmim prefer not to acknowledge their half century I indicated that I hadn’t planned anything special. Bad move! Cue hissy fit, tears, going in the huff etc etc. Anyway now that the meat & two veg have survived the knife attack I’m still no further forward. This may be my last ever posting unless I come up with something appropriate. Any advice / suggestions for an acceptable celebration ???

    That sounds like the very definition of a no win situation.

    Oviously organise a Mountain bike weekend away with her, she’d love that!!

    You better empty the knife draw 😆

    Get her a huge cake in the shape of 100/2. She’ll love that. Then get her a card contratulating her on her half century.

    Then run.

    Does she want a party type thing or something just for you two? How much you willing to spend? Flight in a hot air balloon might be nice?

    suprise party 😉
    invite friends and family

    markenduro…that’s the kind of “out the box” thinking I’m looking for. Now all I have to do is find some young nubette looking for an old bloke with hardly any hair and a big wobbly bit around the waist. Brilliant

    How long have you been married to this woman? I only ask, as if she’s got to 50, perhaps you may know her likes/dislikes by now? Did you not think to ask a couple of months ago?

    stumpy01…Cake’s a good idea. Not willing to spend much although I suspect if I hired the Lowry Hotel in Manc. for the evening and invited all the friends & family it would be a solution. As I said not willing to spend much. And that’s not because I’m Scottish.

    ilovetoridebikes…This is just where it gets stupid !!!I haven’t decided if I want to marry her. I want to keep my options open

    roper…Yes and yes. What are you thinking….A tall cliff?????

    surprise party in the local curry house. It worked for mine tho if she has told you she wants a party you are gubbed

    Makes you look a tad stoopid, no?

    After 34 years, you’ve no idea how the person you’ve spent the most time with clicks? No wonder the divorce rate is so high in this country.

    Re-enforces what I read in that mid-life crisis thread though.

    take her to a posh reasonable restaurant for a slap-up adequate meal
    then meet up with friends and family at her favourite pub the local for some champagne and cocktails beer and scratchings

    scottishcyclocross….That was the best I could come up with myself. All curry houses in England are by definition crap unfortunately so local is not an option. A weekend in Glasgow perhaps, book the Shish Mahal for 20 invite a few friends & family. And possibly a visit to Ae on the way back south.

    nickc… if there were more like me the divorce rate wouldn’t be very high actually

    at least get her a very nice (expensive ) present if you cant be bothered to organise her a party or do her a favour and just leave her if you’ve been with her for 34 years with 2 kids and not considering marrying, keeping your options open whats that about lol

    I’m pretty sure my wife would be irate too if she found out i’d been engaged to someone for 34 yrs and had two kids with them.

    Can you get someone to look after juniors pallywally?

    If so ,take her away somewhere. A weekend ( if funds allow), or a night in a good hotel, wine and decent food. Flowers waiting for her in the room. You know the sort of thing.

    Don’t however book a male stripper. She may have a heart attack.

    Bunnyhop…I guess that’s Plan B. Leave the junior ally’s with the relatives and bugger off somewhere nice. I know a cracking bothy up in Glen Carron

    make her a cup cake with a ring in it, ask her to marry you, (hope she doesn’t try and eat it breaking teeth)
    ——————–
    go to yha near coast pembrokshire is nice, beach drift wood fire, rug, bottle of wine, watch sun go down – ask her to marry you.
    ——————–

    Failing that go out get drunk come home bladdered, get in bed say will you marry me piss yourself
    ——————–

    Chances are she’ll take any of these options (well maybe not the last) and will cheer her up a bit.

    Take her to a cheap, tacky hotel and go out for a bike ride! She’d love that!

    Surprise party… then, remind her of her hissy fit and say “Well, I couldn’t tell you could I?”. Cue, well, anything you want in adoration / apology etc

    How about Base jumping? Gets the blood coursing through the veins again.

    34 years and you still have not made your mind up no chance deciding on her birthday then have you…and you make my 15 years [now married]look positively wirlwind.
    Seriously do what you want/she would like as she clearly accepts you as you are.

    My vote is with the proposal proposal.

    Big surprise party and a swanky hotel afterwards and after it, kid on you’ve had it arranged for ages, of course.

    Make a MASSIVE deal about her being 50! hire a plane to tow a banner etc

    I am already wondering cos my Mrs is 50 next year and 10 days prior to that is our 30th W/A, so what do or how do we celebrate both…
    Wimmin are so hard to cater for… so long as corrie is on the box my mrs is happy , Mmmm ! maybe a Corrie DVD will do the trick 🙄

    When my wife turned 40, a crowd of us took our kids to a hostel for the weekend, We booked the whole thing and went biking, walking, canoeing, rock climbing with barbecues in the evenings.
