Honestly – although I agree it sucks you won’t see him for the holidays – I think you need to cut him a little slack.  He’s about to up and move 1/3 of the way around the world for you.  I don’t think it’s asking too much to want to spend one last holiday with his immeadiate family and friends (especially with the current family situation of the divorce – it’s understandable he wants to be within the support system of his family).

Once he moves to the states, it isn’t going to be easy for the two of you to go to England to spend the holidays with his family (particularly since you will want to see your family for the holidays too, I’d assume).  He probably views this as the last X-mas he’ll get to spend with these people for at least a couple of years.  I really don’t think it’s asking much to want to have that time with them.

That isn’t an easy situation to be in at all. I do feel bad for you. I would actually feel the same way you do. I don’t have much advice for this, being that it is such a unique situation. But, I do want you to know that IMO you are not by any means wrong for feeling the way you do. Wish you lots of luck.
