My husband and I have several rules in our marriage and one of them is if I make plans for us I have to tell him about the plans 5 days in advance and 2 days before. This rule usually works for us unless I forget to tell him one of the two times. I was given some friendly advice about our rule. A guy told me that if I forget to tell my husband just lie and say that I did tell him...odds are he won't remember if I told him or not. I never like to lie but the guy that gave me the advice swears this is the best way to handle the situation.
