DH couldn't go?? I have an awesome job...8 weeks paid vacation a year. DH.doesn't have a good job...not only can he not get the 9 days off to go on vacation...it would be unpaid. I don't see things changing with his job anytime soon. I want to take a vacation...he says to just take the kids and go without him. I am going to...would you?

Yes and I have done that. Took the kids on a vacation when he couldn't go.

I only go away for a few days if DH can't go with me.  And usually its just to see my family who live in the next state.  I wouldn't want to go on a real vacation(like to the beach or something like that) without DH. But thats just me.  If you are both ok with it then go for it.

So...it's ok for the kids to miss out because his job sucks?

I do, every summer. He will often join us for a long weekend, or part of our road trip. He can rarely get more than 10 days off. Last year was the exception and he got 3 weeks, so he spent them with us overseas, kids and I were gone for 6.

Absolutely!! Coming home to a child free, partner free, responsibility free house can be it's own type of vacation. Enjoy your vacations!!

I would. If he can't go then he can't go. Maybe he could go for a few days, then go back home and go to work?

Yea. I would feel bad leaving him but the whole family shouldn't have to suffer. I would make sure to get a sitter and have a couple special date days for us to make up for it though.
