I have an ASD son, and I so know what you're talking about. You guys NEED that break and time together for your sanity, and your marriage. We never took one, and our marriage is over after many years. If you look into it, you'll see (unfortunately,) that many marriages that have the added stress of special needs children don't make it. Which is why the 2 of you especially need to keep going to counseling and work on this long term. You can't ultimately control your husband and MAKE him see the need for this or agree with you. You can only do your best to express your side and show him the facts, and hope he gets it. Saying a prayer for you both.
Also, teaching: been there, done that. If you can hang in, do it. Left last year (either that or suicide at that point. Made the right choice.) But can't get a job. It does suck. But if you can, line up other work before you resign. Just my 2cents.
You 2 lead a very complicated life. Your marriage should sustain you (and your husband,) not wear you down more. Do all you can to convey this to him. Best of luck in your stocking this year.
