Yes. You are allowed to go to social functions on your own, even if you’re married! 🙂 Go and have a great time.

I think it’s more than fine to go without him.

It’s not only absolutely fine- I’d say it’s healthy. Especially if he’s an introvert and you’re much more social, for the two of you to only do things as a couple, he’ll either end up dragged to way more events than he can handle or you’ll end up missing out. Attending some as a couple and some solo is the best solution for this.

I don’t understand the issue or why it wouldn’t be ok. If you are fine driving alone and wouldn’t feel horribly alone at the wedding (if you were also very introverted or something), then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go alone. If you want to go, go.

ladywoodelf :  If he can’t or isn’t feeling up to coming then go without him, you guys don’t have to be attached at the hip. Nothing wrong with going to social events alone.

I go to social events without my husband, they give him anxiety sometimes so it’s easier for me to go alone than make sure he’s okay all night long.

I went to a wedding this last weekend without my SO. I asked the groom if I could bring my bestfriend (someone he knew. We all worked together at one point) and she and I went and had a blast. It was also 3 hours away.

Darling Husband is like this too. Just working and dealing with his immediate family wears him out! I go to most social functions without him, just say he has other obligations if people try to press me for details, and then I change the subject. For an introvert, quiet alone time is an obligation for maintaining mental and even physical health.

Why wouldn’t it be ok? It doesn’t sound like he knows the couple very well anyway.

Totally fine so long as you’re not changing a rsvp at the last moment.

I think it’s completely okay, and agree that it’s healthy. I’m an introvert and my Fiance goes to social events without me occasionally. It’s important in our relationship for us to both be flexible that way, since he’s more extroverted than I am. We’ve also split up when we’ve had two important weddings on a single weekend.
