I should not be posting I have so many other things I need to be doing, and so little time to do it in, before I leave on my trip! Chutzie thanks for posting for me, but with that said, I just can not let this thread go by without my comment!
This time I dissagree with most everyone else! I feel, it is not alright, for one spouse to make decisions like that, without, at the very least, consulting with the other! Especially when you are supposedly the reason or excuse for the decision! It sets up a dangerous and unhealthly precedent, in ones marriage! One spouse should not be making decisions for the other ( with only rare exceptions) You are not a child, and I feel you should not set your self up to be dependent on your spouse to make decisions for you! It is to easy, especially when you don't feel good, to relinquish your share of control and responsibility in a marriage, and once you do that, it can be really tough getting it back! In your situation Laurie, if you have always went on vacation in the summer before, what is so different now? or what has changed to cause your husband to not want to go on a summer vacation? I am not saying you should or shouldn't go, or even that your husbands decision is wrong or right, I just don't think he should of made the decision without you! And especially if it affect the whole family and how they might view it!
I have got to go, I have so much going on right now I can't post any more. But remember Laurie, there is TWO people in a marraige, and both should be equally involved!
That is my two Cents! Good Luck to You!
