Couples - Are you okay with your partner vacationing with friends separately?

This is a no for me. Like I would be home alone taking care of the dogs.
Just curious, cause I been hearing a lot of people plan vacation with the guys or gals.
My married sisters just came back from an all women’s trip.
Just made me perplexed.

Maybe its normal for normal people. @spaceoptic yes- my husband is planning to have a friend and her son over this summer. And has given me the option to opt out on excursions whenever I want and engage as much as I can only handle. A lot of stress and kind of loose loose situation for me.

i dunno, i’ve never been normal

i guess i hear of it

My husband and I have seperate little vacations all the time.

He goes and visits his friends,

I visit mine.

Recently I stayed home and watched the dogs while he went to LA for a few days.

It’s good to give each other space and freedom.

I think I maybe too co-dependent.

This does sound normal and healthy.


We’ve all got our relationship hang ups.

This is just not mine.

Don’t feel bad.

Do you guys have nights out alone?

Yes i am quite comfortable with separate vacations. We do that often.

We are both quite independant

We don’t do anything seperately because I don’t allow it.

But having a choice of socializing or opting out is definitely - both not good choices for me.

What are you afraid of happening?

I wouldn’t care. I’ve gone on trips with buddies without my ex-gf’s and vice versa.

i don’t see the problem. They can cheat on you just as easily on a trip as they can around town.

I don’t get jealous and clingy and I don’t want a girlfriend who does.

Socializing - the ability to be present / have conversation / not having a way to escape.

Being alone - scares me to death how I will manage taking care of myself. Like he was gonna go out to Arkansas to visit her - but we negotiated to her coming here.

I feel like you’d probably fair just fine by yourself.

Maybe you should have your husband go on like a day long hike and see how you do.

It may not be comfortable, but it’s possible.
