Does "For her husband to remember her anniversary" mean "For her husband who has remembered her anniversary"?


Thanks in advance

    Not quite. It more conveys the idea that she is impressed that her husbnad HAS remembered and organised a lot of stuff. It implies he doesn't usually, or cannot usually, or some other impediment to his skills as a husband. (I think you should tell us more about the context than merely posting a link, which I cannot currently open.)

    I have no idea how to explain the grammar of this, sorry.

    cross-posted. My "not quite2 comment is directed to the OP, not to Glenfarclas! :eek:
