Of course a married life doesn’t equal a boring life, silly! 🙂 Now you can have some company on your travels. If you know your Fiance well enough to be getting married, he should know this about you and be accepting of it. Marriage doesn’t mean sitting at home and watching the paint peel on the walls! It sounds like you both have been fortunate enough to have travelled in your lifetime, and now the two of you can share and make new travel experiences together! I love travelling with my Fiance. We backpacked around Europe a few summers ago and it was incredible. Happy travels!

So wait, what does the fact he is the son of a CFO have to do with anything? Are you saying all your traveling has been done because they are wealthy? or did you do all these trips on your own and your just worried he won’t have the travel bug like you?

I think it will be fine- what young couple doesn’t want to travel?!

If he is ok with traveling, I think the only thing that can stand in your way is the money to do it then.  Sometimes your priorities change when you get married… wanting a house and/or kids.  Those might be the things that slow you down and anchor you either by money or that there’s more people to please as far as destination (you want to go to the Maldives but the kids want to go to Disney).

did you do most of your travelling on your own before your fi??

have the two of you done much travelling together?  do you enjoy travelling together???  that would be important to me.

@Marshiara: I really wouldn’t worry. These aren’t the kinds of problems that would (or should!) ever break apart a marriage. I think if he’s told you it won’t be a problem, then you should listen to him. Maybe talk about planning your next trip together. Or, plan your honeymoon together! You can always throw in a nice hotel one night amidst a backpacking/hostel-trekking vacation to compromise if this is important to him.

No problem, just have a travel fund savings account and do what you need to do to save and contribute to it regularly. I think it would be an issue if he didn’t enjoy traveling, but doesn’t sound like that’s the case?

Okay, well it sounds like your future husband aims to please and I don’t think you should worry about!

I know from previous posts your Fiance just started a really tough engineering program and you guys have had your money issues and such, so Im sure its just going to come down to time and money-not intrest! Plus, I’m sure you could plan a kick butt honeymoon 🙂

Is there something more to this? Are you sure that you’re ready to get married? Or are you having doubts that maybe you haven’t seen the world enough, done your own thing, been alone by yourself for long enough to know exactly who you are, etc. etc.? It sounds kind of like there might be a deeper routed issue here….?

In think traveling together is awesome. My Darling Husband and I have been to Asia, Europe, and all over North America together. And when we have to stay statesbound, we go on weekend trips to different cities and towns. Having a “partner in crime” makes it all the better!!

The one thing that is holding us back a bit is that we have pets, and so they need to be boarded. Our cats are getting old and we haven’t travel-tested the dogs yet, but we plan on doing that soon.

Good luck!!
