would you go on vacation if...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
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 I have many times. I have taken my kids on cruises, to the cape, Michigan, Florida all without dh.

Why can't he go for a shorter time? Fly out for 1/2 of the trip? If your job is so awesome a few missed days of pay for him is no biggie.

Yep. We do it all the time with our son, depending on what is going on with our work schedules. Sometimes he will go without me, and sometimes I will go without him. It's not a biggie. We usually find some time to take 1-2 together a year as couple, and at least 1 with all three of us as a family.

i'm in sort of the same boat. my mom rented 2 cabins at my all time favorite place, for 9 days. the whole family is going to be there, and some of the people i met down there about 6-7 years ago (i've been going every year since i was 18 months old) might be there (YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY! super excited to see them again!!) but dh doesn't want to go. he says he prefers Maryland (he's never even been to where we're going, but already "hates" it because it's MY dream vacation place!)

I told him that if he doesn't want to go, fine. he can stay here and do whatever while dd and I go without him. It'll be more fun without him anyways, being all depressing and whatever. goodness, he's so dramatic sometimes.

Usually, when we do family get-togethers, I have to use bil as a barganing device. sad, I know, but they practically grew up together, and his argument against everything family related (my side of the family anyways) is "if bart doesn't have to go, why do i?"

but now bart is going to be there, dh has yet to give me a solid answer about that one. so, as of right now, dd and I are leaving him behind.

I don't know. I want to say I would if it were a really awesome vacation that the kids would miss out on otherwise...but I would feel extremely guilty.

I have too. It upsets me because I want him to go but can't always get what you want right

Quoting momo3fgr8tteens:

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