  • Honestly, I wouldn't like it either. I'd rather my husband use the money to take the whole family on a trip overnight somewhere.

  • I think he should plan a family trip rather then gamble it way since you've guys never went on a trip as a family

  • Why don't you propose that since you're "letting" him go on this trip, that you plan a weekend getaway for just the two of you by next could be a Valentine, birthday or anniversary combo present?!

    If you don't ask/suggest, most men think everything is just fine! :o)

  • i think that when the trip is over, he should tally up what was spent, and then hubby can work over time to get the same money to you. you could go on a little trip yourself, or use it for day trips to the spa...what ever you want for you!!!

  • yes i would also. i suggested that. but did not get any wares on that. he said we will do that after he gets back. it will not happen becasue he is already complaining of the overtime he is putting in and he only put 5 days extra in this month so far. his normal sift is 3 days a wk and thing over three days is overtime. last yr he took a trip to the black hills in south dekota again i could not go because not enough money and could not find any one to watch our kids for 1 wk. well becasue of that trip i had to ask help for x-mas for our family. no money becasue of that trip he took. i am afraid it is going to be the same way this yr again

  • I hope you resolve this. Although I think he should go if he wants to..I would be really upset that he can put in the effort to get funds to go with his friends on holiday but doesn't want to do the same for his family.

    Me and my boyfriend are all about giving our kids really good experiences and making it happen no matter what.

  • I wouldn't let him go and I would throw one hell of a grown-up fit! You two haven't been on a vacation together, yet he is doing all of this work to go on vaca with his friends... I would be so upset and pissed off!

  • I think he's acting like an immature,selfish A-HOLE!! I wonder why in hell did he bother to get married and have a family at all.
    He needs to grow the hell up.
    While he's gone,sell all his stuff and take a trip of your own!

  • Men are so f*ing selfish. Do you have access to the bank account? Start taking money secretly (like $20 at a time or less), so when he does this to you, (or something else like it)you will not feel so back into a corner, you will have options. Honey, you deserve to be treated better!!
