I don’t flaunt it but I’m not going to hide it either

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Dh pays child support and not some piddly amount either. Enough that if bm was careful she could afford to just live off of child support.

Dh also pays for health insurance and half of all medical bills plus all activities and for the most part anytime bm asks for something for the kids. They also go on vacation with us in the summer time when they are out of school.

Even so bm gets upset when she hears dh and I take vacations and because of that dh doesn’t want me telling anyone nor posting anything about it on Facebook in case it gets back to bm.

No!!! I don’t flaunt it, never have and never will. We don’t take elaborate vacations either. A week long vacation to a place we can drive or a 4 day cruise. Again nothing very expensive and I don’t gush all over Facebook either but he doesn’t want me posting anything because even though I’m not friends with her or the kids it always somehow ends up back to her via other friends. And then he has to hear it from her how he doesn’t give her enough child support and he should pay for them to go on vacation and so forth.

I’m sorry she feels she deserves a vacation but it’s not dh’s job to fund it.

In the orginal post it told about a 4 day cruise and some other "small trips" according to her. A 4 day cruise is not a small trip. So it does have something to do with the post. 

Quoting SergeantSausage: Wtf does this have to do with anything?
Quoting MikeysMom22:

A 4 day cruise??? Who has money for a 4 day cruise!!!! That is a truckload of money right there!!!

Also, I would never go on a cruise I could do a lot more with the money...ugh!!! Who wants to be on a stupid boat, in the middle of the water, going splish spash all night while I am trying to sleep!! Ugh!!

Lol.

We love cruises. We took a translateantic, 7 days at sea. It was lovely.

We have been to so many ports and for vacation is great since dd loves the kids area so we all get a break from each other.

I’m waiting for dd to get older so we can go to other places like Germany, Austria, Switzerland and many more.

Quoting MikeysMom22:

I went on board when my mother was going on a cruise with a good friend once. Once they said all ashore!!! I was out of there quick!!! All that rocking back and forth and those puny dinky size rooms they called a bedroom!! And the thought of being on the ocean that long, no thanks!!! I like going to the beach but then being able to leave and go someplace else. I will fly to some places that are too far to drive to if we don't have time but a cruise... NO just no!!! And talk about monsters.. who wants to be swallowed up by the ocean when the dang thing sinks or hit something... Ugh!!

We still fly... to get to the port of sail! Lol

I wouldn’t be happy if I suffered from vertigo or I’d get seasick.

Just thinking about it is making me feel queasy.. no thanks!! 

Why fly somewhere and not just stay there instead? I don't fly anywhere I am not going unless it's to change planes to get to another destination.

We went on a very nice 7 day cruise for only $3500 each. Hardly a truckload. And while you are certainly entitled to whatever you personally enjoy, the cruise lines are a multi billion dollar industry so , I think it is fair to say that there are a LOt of people who enjoy being on “a stupid boat”. SMH

Depending on our destination. We love visiting multiple places. Like we took a cruise in Japan, got to see places many tourists don’t go to and spent almost a eeek in Tokyo. For us it’s amazing.

I do understand people not liking it, like my mom, she feels she wouldn’t want to be in a place she cannot leave at any given time.

You can get a cruise for 300-400 cruise. It’s not that expensive.
