Seperate Vacations?


So my husband turned to me last night and asked,


"Would you be mad if I went to Italy for a week?"

ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS?!?!?!

That's not even the best part. He didn't understand why I thought it was weird for him to take a vacation alone. Without me. Without his family. Especially since I've never been to Italy and really, really want to go.

Am I overreacting? Have you ever taken a solo vacation?

I just choked on my tongue while reading that sentence "Would you be mad at me if I went to Italy...". Uh, Yeah. I would kill my husband if he wanted to go on a vacation, especially to Italy, without me. Unless there is a reeeally good reason.

And for Italy it would have to be good x 100.

Yes, I would be mad too. Maybe go away alone for a weekend, but not to Italy :)

Nancy said...

I have taken solo vacations, but only for a long weekend and only within the U.S.. Italy sounds like something you should do together, especially if you're wanting to go.

Umm I think your totally justified!! I would be so mad if my husband went to Italy alone!!!! Maybe leave the kids but you!!! No way!

If my husband wanted to go alone for a vacation, it better be to the bedroom for some sleep. LOL

There's no frigging way in hell I would let him go to Italy alone without me and the kids. You reacted the way I would have LOL

Well, I wouldn't be mad, but I'd definitely want the WHOLE story!! Why would he go alone without you? You are right for feeling the way you feel.

I can understand taking a solo vacation, but why Italy?? That's so not fair!

Yep, I'd be pissed too!

i would be piiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssed. i've been on many a solo vacations BEFORE I WAS MARRIED. That's how it works, right?

MrsFortune said...

I dunno if you're over reacting or not, but my parents used to take separate vacations all the time, so I don't think it's so weird. I don't know the situation but I can say I would definitely be mad if my hubz wanted to go somewhere without me that we both wanted to go.

That's no little weekend getaway with the guys or going fishing or something. That's an ocean away. I'm with you...I'd be pissed!

I would love to take a vacation alone. At least that way I could be sure I wasn't boring anyone with my constant picture taking.
If it is for business, then I say let him go. But, I would definitely question why your husband would want to go to that particular place and without you. It's your right to be suspicious.

Yes, I have taken a solo 'WKND' every year every since the kids have been born with some of my girlfriends. I think every Mommy deserves a bit of alone time. But, husband in Italy alone for a week without me? HELLLL NO!

grayelephant said...

wow. that's really rude of him! i would definitely definitely be pissed!!! hell yeah, i'd be pissed!! (but, being the hypocrite that i am ~hee hee~... i actually did the same thing to my husband and wanted to take a solo trip to italy to do an archeological dig before my son was born... but i did ask if he wanted to come with me! but since he was so PISSED, and i ended up not going.)

Nicole said...

It must be temporary insanity, no? Why would a man think that you would want to stay home w/a little one (like you do every day) while he jetsets to Italy?

I do some overnight trips alone, once in a very blue moon, but nothing major like this. NO WAY!!!
Unless you get to take off for a week alone somewhere when he gets back!!

A weekend away is one thing; a week to Italy alone is in another solar system altogether. Let us know how this unfolds...

Awesome Mom said...

I am with everyone else. A week alone in a different country is way different than a short trip in the US. I would totally wanting to go also.

The wife and I have taken separate vacations before. But as others mentioned, not for as long, nor as far. It was also before our daugter was born. AND she went to New Orleans (where I wasn't as big on going to) while I went to Anaheim (where she had no interest in going).

So, I guess that is a long way of saying, under these circumstances, yeah, I'd say I would understand you not being happy about it.
