    We both travel for work so there is that. 

    But I’ve been away for Hen do’s, weekend aways with friends and trips with my brother and going back to Germany to see family. He does the same.

    I’m quickly finding out that my Fiance and I have really different views on spending time apart. He HATES it. I don’t see what the fuss is. So far I’ve only travelled on my own for my job, and he complained and pouted the whole time, lol.

    I’ve suggested he travel home without me and he nixed it out of hand. He literally won’t consider it. Strange– to me– but to each his/her own!

    I’ve travelled within and out of the country without the Fiance prior to and during our engagement and he has done the same. And there probably will be times when we are married when we don’t travel together. For instance, if I keep going down my career trajectory, I’ll have to attend a lot of conferences in the future that I know he won’t be interested in coming along to. Then there are the trips with the girls lol

    @Laurenplusalex:  Yup, many times, both while dating and engaged. I’ve been away with girlfriends half a dozen times, Inc abroad, and with family about the same. He’s been away for work a few times, and for pleasure twice. 

    We may very well still holiday with friends when married: the only thing likely to hold us back would be cost (as our annual holiday together takes priority; additional trips are a bonus). 

    I live going away with him, but I also love going away with my friends, so I see no reason not to.

    When me & my husband were dating I went on a week-long trip to the Dominican Republic with my girls. He didn’t have a problem with it (which he shouldn’t!). Of course we missed each other a lot, but sometimes time away is good, makes you miss each other & coming home is even better 🙂

    He also has been working out of town a lot lately (3-4 days a week).

    I lived abroad for the best part of 2 years whilst dating/engaged to DH. He still takes holidays with his friends and without me to this day. Don’t get the big deal.

    We love traveling andy favorite vacations are with him. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t go without each other from time to time. 

    I went to Chicago with a girlfriend visiting another girlfriend. They both have partners too, so we could have brought our guys, but wanted this to be our girls’ thing. We did one week Chicago and added 3 days of NYC, so 1.5 weeks. 

    He even went on a four week long trip. He always wanted to go to India and I am so not into that. So he went with his uncle with whom he travelled a lot prior to our relationship. 

    I also do weekend trips with girlfriends. 

    Now that we’ve got a baby, I dont think we’re going to be going away for too long without one another. But long weekenda are definitely still doable.

    I forgot to check the “travelled while married” box even though it was just this past weekend. It was supposed to be a girls’ weekend (plus the husband of the friend where we stayed), but I forgot my medication so he actually had to come the next day lol.

    I’ve traveled plenty of times without my SO. It has never bothered wither one of us. We actually like the little break we get. Not that we don’t love each other but we all need our US time.

    @Laurenplusalex:  I went to Europe for 30 dfays with a friend when Fiance and I were dating. It was serious at the time and my friend was convinced he would be on one knee when we deplaned (he wasn’t) and I travel for business all the time (every week).

    I just planned a weekend at my Alma Mater for reunion weekend with my girls from college. Fiance isn’t coming and he would be so bored if he did.

    I probably won’t take any more 30 day trips without him unless it’s for work, but anything less than a week is definitely on the table after the wedding.

    Fiance went on two weekend trips without me when we were dating. I went on one week long trip without him since we’ve been engaged. We both love to travel and truly enjoy spending time together so the vast majority of the time we travel together but we see nothing wrong with taking trips seperately as well.

    Fiance and I often plan little mini trips over public holidays or when we have time off.

    We always ask the other if they would like to come, I don’t know I would feel rude just planning something without asking him if he’d like to come. (unless it was strictly a girls weekend)

    This coming Easter, I am going interstate for 4 days, Fiance is going bush for 6 days, then we are having a weekend together as it’s our anniversary.  

    I don’t want to go bush, he doesn’t want to come see my family, so this way we are all happy!
