You’re not alone. I likely won’t get a honeymoon either. My husband is Military and his time is accounted for pretty much every moment of the day. He doesn’t get much in the way of leave, so it isn’t like we could actually go anywhere between his frequent deployments. The last time I was on a vacation was in 2005, when I went on my senior trip.

does he not like *any* vacations, or he just doesnt like beach-y ones? when you have the time or money there are a lot of non beach options that he might like. depending on his tastes (culture, architecture, birds. whatever)

i think the date will definitely cheer you up!! im sure theyve got no idea that the comments are upsetting you =(

@acciotoni:  I’m jealous too! Especially of your parents, I long to go back to Jamaica! Lol, but seriously sometimes I see threads on here about other bees and their awesomely fantastic sounding honeymoons and locations and get a little green. I’m not sure if FI & I will be able to go anywhere particularly thrilling. But I know we will at least try to stay in a hotel in a beach town a few hours from home and we will MAKE it special. Why not plan a weekend getaway sometime in the next couple of months. That way you guys can get out together again and also have something to look forward to. Even if it’s only a town away it may perk you up a little bit!

Aw, your DH sounds like a sweet guy at least!

My family never took vacations growing up, so I’ve always been jealous of people who actually go on vacations! I always told myself “My future family & I will take a yearly trip if it kills me, dang it!”

Fast forward to meeting SO and finding out he’s not big into traveling or going on vacation. GAH! A lot of this has to do with having IBS. That has kind of turned him into a homebody. I guess my future kids and I will be taking trips by ourselves!

Your day will come, OP! Once things slow down and become more settled, I’m sure you’ll have more opportunities to go on vacation. You have your whole life ahead of you!
