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?

Quoting RLT2:

I wouldn't ask, I would inform him and discuss it with him.

I'd probably 'ask' also. but not in a 'can I go' but in a 'what do you think about me doing this' way

My husband always says for me to just go when I want to go somewhere as well as when I want to buy something he always tells me to just buy it but I always ask before I do anything because I feel like we have to be ok with eachother first, if he says he's ok it makes me feel much more comfortable doing what I want to do :)

I know. It really put me off. I have been a mother for 17 mo now and decided its time to meet new people and maybe make a friend and try something new and he got all freaked out.

It was the first time I have attempted to branch out lol.


Quoting lovinglife0682:

Why? That sounds controlling.




Quoting Hyman:

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.

I'm looking forward too it. I haven't been to the land of out in, well forever lol

Quoting LeahJ:

I would check in with my husband, in large part because i was leaving the kids with someone else and he gets a vote in that. But it would be a courtesy/respect thing, NOT as in I "need" his permission to go. And he'd say what yours did. Lol. Go, woman! Take a break!

I would give my husband a heads up, I wouldn't ask permission though.

So nobody is allowed to be drunk on a Thursday?


Quoting Anonymous:


I hope your kids are with a sitter now since you're drunk. On a Thursday. 


Quoting reaandiziesmama:

The babysitter? Hell I don't know. I'm half a pint into rum. Forgive my typo

Quoting Anonymous:

What are the kids taking care of?
