Call me crazy maybe I thought a 15 year Anniv would be worth celebrating. Well it is next month and gee maybe I thought that milestone would be worth a trip. My hubby keeps blowing it off. If it was important he'd figure something out. He is putting it off saying let me talk to my mom (to watch kids) well shit you've known for how long. Yoi couldn't have talked to her months ago? Forget it. Happy effing anniversary to me. I'll take a trip myself

You could plan a trip just as easily as he can.

I said that is what I'm going to do. I'll go myself since he's acting like he doesn't want to

You have a month. I planned an anniversary trip for my husband and myself, made all arrangements, and booked everything in an hour.

I’m the planner in our relationship. I’d figure it out, give her a heads up and then book. Why does he have to plan it?

Hope you figure it out. Maybe he is surprising you?

For my 15 year anniversary I did not take a trip. Why is a trip necessary?

I can understand your frustration. 15 years is important and it would’ve been nice for him to take initiative. We are going to Turks and Caicos this summer for our 15 yr anniversary. I kind of “encouraged” dh to be a part of the planning of this trip. I explained that it was for BOTH of us and i wanted his input and help. He willingly sat down and researched locations with me. Would he have done that on his own without me telling him how important it is to me? Possibly not. But he did and I’m thankful for it. Guys are just weird and have different priorities. Sorry you’re feelings are hurt!

My dh has NEVER planned a trip.  I wouldn't even want him too.

I think she meant that you could have planned a trip for the two of you to take together, instead of expecting him to do it. Why do you assume it's the husband's job?

By the way, it's ridiculous to expect a trip for your 15th anniversary. You can celebrate it in other ways.
