what would you do if hubby had to go out of country for work

my hubby work for a company that build the big machines that make computer chips. he knows one of the machines better then anybody else, so if it breaks down they would send him to fix it. I don't know how i feel about wakeing up one morning to him calling me saying i'm going to Korea right now. Am i being selfish what do i say to him?

  • No you aren't being selfish at all. You'll miss your husband. I'd go buy a camera for your laptop ot computer for you both. That way you two can chat on Skype on his off time. So you two can see each other face to face and so can your child(ren). That is what my husband and I do when he has to travel out of town for a few days or weeks.

  • I guess it would depend on how long he had to go for.

  • My husband travels for work and it sucks but that's life. We send emails *constantly* when he is out of country and when he is traveling in country we talk a lot...every morning we drink coffee on the phone and every night we discuss the day. I miss him, he's gone right now, but that's his job and he loves it. He has talked about quitting because it's hard for him to be away from home for long stretches but I've told him to never quit because of me and that I support whatever decisions he makes. I would want the same respect.
