Has anyone here ever taken a vacation without thier spouse and children? I'm just looking for some perspective on this. My 2 sisters and I want to go on a women's (sisters) only vacation, not even sure where yet, but we're starting to make some plans - no kids, no H's. We're all spread out in age and we've never been together, just us, to have fun as sisters without our respective families, so I'm really very excited about the possibility! This is not a party-down vaca, we're not looking to 'score' or do anything risque - just be together, drink margaritas, soak in a hot tub, and relax. I've saved the money on my own (my H and I keep our money separate anyway) so I don't really see the problem. If my H wanted to go on a vaca with his brother or sister, I wouldn't have a problem with it at all and he knows this because there have been times when it's come up but he always says no, "not without you and the kids". I really didn't think H had a problem with me going up until last night.
So things are really kind of sucking for H, based on what he tells me, regarding his contracted jobs, and last night, after receiving a bad call, he simply says, "That's a lot of money for a vacation." I had never even mentioned money at all - I never had a price because we have no solid plans so I really didn't know what he was talking about. So I asked him, "What do you mean?" and he said it again and then isolated himself in our bedroom all night.
I think his comments are just a knee jerk response to his other stuff he has going on, but it still stinks and it made me wonder if I was being unreasonable to take a vaca with my sisters without him or my kids (who are teens btw, and will likely be away that same week). So, any thoughts? IS he just being a baby or am I being selfish?
