My sister in law ran into this problem. My brother is really forgetful. Just too much on his mind. He doesn't mean to forget. He just does. So she decided to drop subtle reminders, like, "My birthday is coming up. Are we doing anything special?" She said it helps.
Sometimes people get overwhelmed by the events and responsibilities of there day to day life and it often builds up... we are human. We make mistakes. I would bring it up and see what's going on... my wife may need help with something and doesn't want to bother me or doesn't know how to ask and overwhelmed... I wouldn't make a huge deal

He is not very good at remembering things, so I wouldn't be too upset.
I'd feel bad, maybe I'd remind him. Guys are usually bad with dates. But once he knows that dates like these are important to me, I feel he should try to remember and do something. I don't expect anything spectacular, just a small card as token of appriciation is nice (chocolates wouldn't hurt either lol) .
Because if my partner likes something, I'd try my best to do it for him, unless I'm super uncomfortable with it.
My current partner though, is good with dates ❤️
