  • Is there a way your husband could go with you to Chicago? If he objects to you going because you would be travelling alone, could your Aunt come and get you (either drive or fly) and you travel to chicago with her? I hope everything works out and you get to go!!

  • I think he is being a control freak. What country are you from? If my DH said this to me, i would be very upset. Don't allow your DH to control you like this. He has no right to keep you from your family!!!

  • He knows you better than we do. Quit being a baby about this and plan a trip with him or have your aunt visit your home.

  • He's trying to protect you not punish you. Have your aunt come visit you.

  • I would just ask him what would make him more comfortable. Tell him you really want to go and let him talk to you aunt if he wants to souble check the flight info. I is one thing if he is just looking out for you but he shouldnt tell you that you cant go somewhere. You can travel there no problem. Just lay it all out for him your schedule and tell him you want to try it.

  • you tell him "how can i prove i am able to do things myself if you never give me a chance to show you?" have your aunt meet you at the airport, if she's from chicago then of course you wont get lost, i had a now EX fiance who insited on going everywhere with me, even coffee with the girls, i drew the line when he he had a fit over me goinginto the city an hour from our town to meet my sisters for lunch. that was that. and remember, your here now, we have rights. oh yeah baby.
