All marriages and couples need TIME away from each other in order to be truly HAPPY.
I say what I do out of 25 years experience of being with one MAN....... married 21.7 years to him.
well, like i said in another post, i'm not overly possessive of my husband and do respect his right to do what it is he wants to do, but i also feel that there's a time to do everything and going on a trip alone on his side might not be the right time. like i said, we just got back together since a week only after 3 months of separation (due to visa issues, nothing more) and i think now is the time to start consolidating what we have and want to have.
@ evenow, i guess for the short term this might be a good decision in the sense that he'll be happy to know that you're not going with that friend for a trip... but in the long run, like Doubt&Wonder said, you have to watch for your feelings of resentment.
