    Easy solution. Since they are financial counselors simply state that while you would LOVE to go, it is not within your budget to do so at this time and that it would be financially irresponsible for you to go. Thank them profusely for the invitation and wish them a wonderful vacation!

    I don’t think you should go but my reasoning has nothing to do with your FMIL.

    Anyone who has only $50-$100 left over at the end of the month can’t afford to go Aruba or anywhere else.

    So you can honestly say “It’s not possible for me to join you this time.”

    @julies1949:  i totally agree.

     

    @TGold:  that’s a long flight and a lot of money just for a few days.  i would be honest with them, you simply cannot afford to go right now.
