Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

SO is out of town for work. Won't be back for at least a week. My neighbor wants me to go out with her Saturday to a dj/karaoke party in a town 30 minutes away. She is willing to pay her 18 year old niece to stay with my kids, buy my drinks, and get the hotel room.

So I asked SO if I could go. He said " why are you asking, you are grown, kids are taking care of, go". I just feel it would be disrespectful of me to go without making sure he was OK with it.

Would you ask in this situation, or just go?

No I don't ask my husband if I can go out but if I make plans I do inform him of them.

I wouldn't ask but I'd let him know I'm going.

That's how I feel. He's three states away. I want too make sure he's ok with me going to a hotel party and staying all night. I thought I was being respectful lol

Quoting mcwife86:

id ask too. id want to make sure he was comfortable with me going out. i wouldn't just go without running it by him.

I would ask. The kids are involved and I would not make that decision on my judgement alone. I think it is proper to ask your partner and co-parent to help make decisions like this.

If you would expect him to ask if the shoe was on the other foot, then it is only fair to extend him the same courtesy:)

Yes. And Dh would say no, lol

He has been out of town and I mentioned I'm going to a knitting class to learn and he got all mad and upset and said he was hurt I didn't tell him ...

So probably won't mention anything to him ever again.
