Do you go on vacation without your husband??

Heck yes! We aren’t married yet, but even after we are I will continue. I have more vacation time than my fiance, plus I make traveling a priority while he is more of a homebody, so I probably take 4-5 trips per year without him.

I went on a girls trip with my mom for a weekend. Not a big deal. But I wouldn’t go on a “big” vacation lasting longer than that or one that was expensive without my husband. If you have the opportunity to travel a lot and you take multiple trips a year then I can understand going without your hubby. But I personally just enjoy being with my husband the most and I love seeing new places with him. But that’s just a personal thing. Friends shouldn’t judge you for going without him. If he doesn’t want to go and you do then why not go with friends?

Now that we are married and our first trip together was our honeymoon I don’t think that either of us would travel apart. We aren’t big travellers anyway and I would much rather spend time with my husband than with any of my friends.

Yes. I usually take a girls’ trip and a trip with my parents every year without my Fiance. We take at least 4 trips together — a longer international one, a weekend away somewhere like NYC, Christmas with his parents in FL, and he comes along on a second trip with my parents. I love to travel!

Well, no, but as I write this I’m sitting thousands of miles away from my hubby since I’m visiting family out of state and he had to stay behind for work…but that doesn’t really count as vacation, either. We’re pretty miserable without each other, and we both love travelling, so other than times like this I don’t see why I’d go anywhere without him.

We both love to travel, so it’s unlikely that I’d ever take a big out of country trip without him cause he would definitely want to go too.  But I’d easily do smaller girls trips without him.

moto5522 :  Nope but that’s only because I can’t imagine leaving him with the kids lol.  But we rarely vacationed without each other prior to kids either.  I guess we are just more homebodies.

We take an annual trip back east together, and that is all he is willing to travel. He has zero interest in traveling, so it is go by myself or don’t travel. My dad also does not travel, so my mom takes a couple trips a year with my Aunts or friends. It is quite common in my circles.

We are engaged not married but have been together for 8 years. We definitely go on vacations separately and that will continue once we’re married. I go on more than him as my friends are more spread out and my family are from another country so I will meet my friends or mum somewhere and have a holiday or take a trip to see them.  Neither of us would be classed as a homebody, and we take couple vacations and also groups ones but I think it’s good for us both to do things with just our friends.

moto5522 :  Yep! Mine is happy to have a few days at home to play poker with the guys, play squash as much as he wants, and hang out with our pup!

We travel 3-4 times together each year on trips or vacations, I just like to go much more often than he does, and it’s a great way for me to keep up my female friendships with my mom, out of town girlfriends, sisters, etc.

Yep 100%. My FH has a lot of limitations on where he can go due to his military service. If I want to travel to those places I have to go without him. I also have family overseas I like to visit, and it bores him to tears. I also typically do all the trip with my daughter solo for dance competitions, because whilst he loves watching her dance it bores him to tears.

I go backpacking without hubby – solo time on the trails is my vacation! I love Darling Husband and we travel together too, but I enjoy solitude in nature and he really doesn’t have much interest in being in the woods for a week or more at a time. I think too much codependency in any marriage is unhealthy, and maintaining occasional solo time is important for anyone as an individual.
