Ok so... I just recently decided I'd love to take a trip in the next 7-12 months to Amsterdam. I've never been out of the country, and have dreams of traveling several places around the world. I have a 2yr old & a 3yr old. So when I brought this idea up for a little mini vacation (3 nights) to my fiance, he told me he is NOT interested & would never leave the country, he doesn't want to fly, he thinks it's stupid, etc,etc. So I eventually, after trying to convince him to go, said ok, well then I guess I will have to find a few good friends to join me...Then he goes on to say, if I go he won't stay in this relationship anymore : / Umm...I'm sorry but, in my opinion that is the dumbest, childish thing I've ever heard. Really? Because I want to travel, take a lil brake (which I NEVER do, I am home 24/7) something is wrong with me? What are y'alls opinion on that? Am I missing something? So after a while of discussing this, he goes on to tell me, MOTHERS DO NOT TRAVEL, ESPECIALLY OUT OF THE COUNTRY with children the same age as ours, and that I need to wait until they are MUCH older, like 13+... So he's now making it, along with my mother, who has now jumped on the subject as well..seem like if I want to travel out of the country that I am a BAD mother... Sorry...I just need some input... Perhaps words from mothers who DO travel, or have traveled w/ out their little ones... I just don't understand why now this is such a big deal in my house & w/ my mother...Answer Question

good thing he is only your fiance... i see misery in your future!!!!! he will not change after getting married he will only get worse. he is a control freak and he sounds like the kind of man who wants to keep the woman bare foot and pregnant.

At those ages, we only traveled with our kids. Of course, my husband realizes that in order to get around you often times have to fly- refusing to fly really limits where you will go. I would not be in a relationship who refused to fly or who wanted to control what I did.
