@dreamer1288:  How are you guys paying for the honeymoon?  Can you come up with some extra money yourself if he’s complaining that it’s too expensive?

Does he know how important the honeymoon is to you? If he does and he simply doesn’t care than yes I’d be upset too. If you haven’t told him maybe he just doesn’t realize the importance you are putting on it.

@dreamer1288:  If it’s really important to you, sit him down and talk more about it. He may not know just how important this is to you. I know that I’m guilty of that myself sometimes – just glossing it over and not realizing how important things are to other people. It’s not that I’m TRYING to be insensitive but maybe I’m not listening well enough or understanding the emotions enough.

One more try!

I would be upset too. There are a few things like this though that have come up with my FI and I where he just doesn’t get WHY I want to have or do something. Thankfully once I explain it to him and he sees how important it is to me, he usually agrees. But I do have to tell him sometimes that he needs to think of it not in terms of practicality but as giving it as a gift to me because it means so much to me.

I really wanted engagement pictures. FI doesn’t think those are any different from wedding pictures. So I explained the difference and how much it meant to me since we don’t have any great pictures together. Honestly, I blink and give weird angles to armature photographers and our selfies on my iPhone are not Save the Date worthy!…I NEED a professional! LOL. So he said okay, let’s do it. Not because he wants to at all but because he knows what it means to me.

It hurts more because this is something that has meaning to you. He needs to understand that…it’s not just another vacation or time away…it’s your honeymoon that you’ve been dreaming about your whole life.
