Do you take vacations without each other and without the children? Business trips do not count.

this is funny because we were talking about taking solo vacations not to get away from one another but he likes the wilderness and i like beaches, etc... i wouldn't give it a second thought about taking a solo vacation however in the end i probably would feel guilty for having a great time and nobody to share it with....

Never without DD but without each other I have.  Last year I took two with my parents and DD.  He couldn't come but was happy for me to go.  I do feel guilty and intend to take those trips again but with him.  I prefer taking my vacations as a family with him and DD.

I go to a food conference without DH or the kids each year. Would love for them to join me, but it's not their thing.

I take the kids on a big road trip every year. DH can only join us for part of the time.

DH and I will have a vacation without the kids next summer, for our 20th. It will be really nice. The last time we went without the kids was for our 10th, and I was pregnant with our youngest.

No way! If I want to go on a vaca there is no one I would rather share it with than my hubby. We have a trip planned for next year to go to Germany and I can't wait.

Not without each other, no. He may take a trip out of town to go visit his parents (2 hours away) once in a blue moon without me or the kids, but I figure everyone needs time alone, so I don't begrudge him that. If I had friends or family to visit, I'd take an overnight trip every now and then, but I don't.

We haven't been anywhere without the kids in ages.
