help! He's threatening to divorce me!

How do I get my husband to agree with me on this situation?

My husband is not my 4 year olds father. Her father and I have been seperated for over 3 years and he hasn't seen her since 2011 (other than skype) despite us having a legal agreement that she is to visit with him over the summer. He lives in the virgin islands and we are in Florida so normal visitation isn't an option.

He bought a ticket for our daughter to visit him from may until the end of June. I don't mind her traveling to see him. His sister will fly with her out there since she'll be going to visit over the summer as well.

When I brought the situation up to my dh he refuses to let her go. He says if my ex wants to see her he will have to fly up here (not realistic being that he works full time)

I explained to him that it's important for her to spend time with him and his family but my dh says he doesn't want to be with me if I let her go.

Help! What do I do? I don't want to lose my husband but this is something I can't really budge on.

Well, not to be harsh, but it's not his choice. At all. 

And he would divorce you over something so small?

I feel like he's over reacting. I don't know why he'd threaten to leave over it.

If you trust she'll be safe and taken care of, I don't see the harm in it. She's your child, the ultimate decision is yours

What kind of marriage do you have? Not a good one of he's threatening divorce. You need to work on your marriage.
Not bashing! But he is threatening divorce here over her seeing her dad

This isn't his choice and if he is threatening divorce over this than he isn't a very good husband to begin with. :-/

Honestly, it's your call on whether she goes or not. I am sorry he is being so petty about this.

Over reacting would be an understatement here ;-)

He is being petty. It's not really his choice.
