How would you feel if he wanted to do the same thing? I’m sure you would be happy with whatever made him happy. And that is how he’s feeling 🙂 Try to put yourself in his shoes and hopefully that will make you feel less guilty.

Honestly, you should enjoy yourself. My brother and sister are on the west coast and I, on the east, so I understand the hole. Go enjoy yourself and look forward to time with your mom and sis. He’ll enjoy having the house to himself for a little bit.

I’m sure he’ll be able to take care of the house by himself, and if not the worst that happens is you come home to a messy house. He’ll be fine. A happy wife is a happy life.

He probably won’t shower or shave for several days in a row.  It’ll be awesome.

Last December, my father took me to Germany so I could see my brother, sister in law, my niece and to meet my 2nd niece who was born Aug. 2009.  Anyway, we went for a week and I did feel terrible leaving Fiance behind but you know what?  I’m so glad I went.  It’s only a week.  You might feel bad at first, but once you’re with your mom and sister…you’ll feel much better.

It will be great for both of you and you’ll both still have Christmas together.  I live very far from home too and spent 8 weeks at home last year!  It was fantastic to ‘refuel’ on family time and it was also wonderful when I came back to then-FI.  It’s good for the soul to spend time with your family – I find it makes such a huge difference for me and I’m sure you’ll find the same for yourself.  I think I’ll probably end up spending time on my own at home without Darling Husband throughout the course of our marriage because it is so important to me (and I’m willing to take whatever time off I need to do it!) although I have to say when he’s there with me it’s sheer heaven – all the people I love the most in the same place at the same time – amazing…

Don’t feel guilty – enjoy it while it lasts and enjoy the reunion with Darling Husband when you see each other again!

@mrbee: Great response! I love when my husband leaves because I get to play video games and eat Taco Bell. It’s awesome!

Nah don’t feel quilty. You need to be happy and he obviously understands that. He’ll probably take the opportunity and have a man’s week.
