Here is my dilemma:
My fiancee has been wanting to go to work in Alaska on the fishing expeditions for years now. Today, he went to the meeting that would alow him to sign up for January. It's for 3 months and he would come back with $30,000. So, what's the issue? I don't want him to go. It's not an issue of danger (he would be working in the processing plant and not on the boat). But still.....3 MONTHS! I have a lot of concerns.
What would you do? Am I being selfish? We've already argued about this and he feels I am being short sighted and not wanting him to be a man and take care of his family. I just feel like he could find a job here and no need for the seperation. We also have 5 kids, too. But I am working right now and we aren't hurting for money. What are your honest opinions.
If it was your guy, would you be upset and object to him going?

I would be concerned but I would want him to go. If this is what he feels like he needs to do, then so be it. Of course, our kids and I would miss him terribly but think about what that money can buy! 3 months, thats it. That money can put you ahead. Thats what I would focus on. In our relationship, I wouldn't worry about cheating, lying, etc so that would help me focus more on what that money can do for our family. Be strong!
