If you could afford spending 8k on your husband's summer trip would you do it?
If your friend did would you think "it must be nice to waste money like that"?

I don't understand, is it a family vacation or just your husband going off with his friends? I would absolutely spend that (and more) on a family trip, but if it's just a bunch of stinky "boys" they can go the budget route unless your annual vacation allotment is 50k or more!!

Sure I guess. If that's what he wanted to do. I think it's odd that my husband would have his own trip though. He has never indicated he wanted to go on a summer trip alone other than the one time he went on a weekend fishing trip. That trip was only about $700 though.

 like...on him to go on vacay without me, or the family? Uhhh yea no.. 8k would be too much for a single trip. WHo does that?

if someone else did, I would think nothing of it. Their money, their life. Unless of course I knew that were not well off, then I would just think they are stupid.

Dh does not go on solo trips unless it is for work, so no...we would not drop 8K on a solo trip for one of us. Our next family trip will be between $15K-$20K and will be for 4 people. I would certainly not judge anyone for doing it though...we just prefer family trips over solo trips.

It's a guy's trip. Just him and his mates.

We've had on our honeymoon and when we stayed at San Fran for about 2 almost 3 weeks.. If DH Spent that alone I guess it would depend on the type of trip and how long

If you have the money to do it, I never see it as a waste. PEople who say things are a waste often say that because they wish they could have money to do things like that.

on a family trip? sure. 

not just for SO though. i can't fathom him ever wanting to do something that expensive by himself though.
