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 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?

Unless your vacation consists of going to visit family.

No, I wouldn't.

I would just plan something fun close to home that wouldn't take him having to take any days off of work, and make it just a short... like day trip or something.

I sure would.  I do ofter with just my kids and myself. Have fun!

I might and go and take the kids to visit family out of state for a week that he doesn't care to see. but an actual vacation? no way. it wouldn't feel right or be the same if my husband couldn't go too. It just wouldn't be fair and I wouldn't be able to enjoy myself if I knew my husband was stuck at work and not with us enjoying it.

Nope it just isn't the same. I might do something close to home but no way.

i would ask if they could cash out a couple of weeks so i could take him with and not feel the loss -- some companies will do this but some won't

Heh, I sort of guessed you were the type who had "his" money and "her" money. 

I guess I'd just feel really bad leaving my husband at home, even if he were ok with it. I'd want to make sure he would have some fun while I was gone, so if I were able, I'd give him some gift certificates. Do you give your husband gifts other than holidays? You might consider it. It might make the whole going on vacation without him thing a bit more palatable.

Quoting Anonymous:

Well..we keep our money separate..So he could do that if he wanted yes... I think he would just work and be home really...

Quoting phoebe81:

Can you give him a "stay-cation" while you're gone? Maybe buy him a gift certificate to the golf course or some other fun stuff he can do with his friends while you're gone? 

I'd go if he was ok with it. If it would cause problems within our relationship, I'd make other arrangements.
