My son (18) wants his gf to come on our family vacation.  DH and I are paying for all the kids to go, my sister and her husband are paying for their kids, and some of my dhs family is going

We decided together a while ago we were going to make this a family vacation so just family. We havent been on an actual family vacation in a long time usually people bring friends, gfs/bfs, etc etc but we thought this time we would do family only

I told DS he was not going to be the only one breaking the rules. If he wanted to go on a vacation with his gf then that is fine but it wouldnt be our family vacation. He of course is really angry and I told him to quit his shit because I was funding the vacation in the first place. I dont even have to pay for him to go and he is being really ungrateful 

ETA: This isnt about the money it is the fact that it is a family vacation. She is not family. I have only met her a handful of times, my DH has not met her at all, none of the rest of the family has either. It would be beyond disrespectful to the rest of my family to bring someone else when we all agreed family only 


UPDATE: DS ended up not going with us. We had a lot of fun without him and then after he said he wishes he went. He apologized for all the drama/

That's fine, just don't be surprised if he decides not to go.

And just so we're clear, I don't think you were wrong at all.

Yeah he hasnt said either way but if he doesnt go his loss. 

We are going to have fun with or without him.

Good for you. The last thing you want is to look at your family vacation photos and have some random girl your son dated once upon a time as a teenager in every one.

Yup. You are paying, you make the rules. If he wants to be a brat about it, he can stay home. But I would make sure that he stayed with someone or someone stayed with him. Just to be mean..lol
