Your husband sounds as neurotic about resort areas in Mexico as my Mother in Law did about us going to Cancun for our honeymoon!  Does he know he sounds like a nervous 50-something woman?  You probably guessed it, but we still have all our fingers.  The people in those resort towns make all their money off tourists, they don’t want to scare us away!

On the other hand, if you guys can spend the time/money on a trip to Hawaii or Europe, then I say you should let him keep being nervous 🙂

As long as you are not planning to interfere with the drug trade along the border, you should be fine. Like Pamapoo said, the resort towns rely on (most American) tourist, (as does the drug trade in fact) so your welfare, and fun is in the best interest of those communities!

Actually, this reminds me of something I said last night. Darling Husband pointed out a speed boat for sale and said “thats what we need to get right there”. I said it was probably a good way to hurt ourselves or drown (I tend to have an anxious personality and always thing the worst, especially around water). He told me not to be so silly and I responded with yelling “I don’t like doing fun things, they’re dangerous!”

We laughed about it but I was serious until I realized how silly it was.

I’m sure you’ll make the best of what ever trip you take. Have fun!

This is going to sound horrible, and I completely understand that I’m being irrational…but I side with your husband! I feel the same way about Mexico. I never hear anything good about it, just bad things and it scares me. I won’t even move to Austin, TX because of it (and my SO really wants to move there for his career). Austin’s too close to the border for my liking.

@yellowismyfavoritecolor:  Seriously? Austin is AWESOME! I would LOVE to live there. And it’s like 250 miles from the border. They’d have to get through San Antonio first :p

I’m sorry your husband is convinced he’s gonna die in Mexico, hah! We got engaged in Cabo so it’s now officially on my favorite places list.

If that’s the only reason you wouldn’t move there, it might be worth trying to overcome that fear. You realize it’s irrational, so why indulge it? Austin’s a great city; I don’t know what the stats are on crime, but I’d be willing to be they’re not any higher than cities with similar profiles anywhere else in the nation. Don’t let fear control your life, particularly when the fear is as baseless as this!!

Haha this sounds like my Fiance. Every time a news report comes out about something bad happening somewhere he crosses it off the mental list of places we can go. Aruba? Nope, a girl was murdered there on vacation. Australia? Nope, too many poisonous animals. Eventually were are going to run out of places and we’ll never be able to go anywhere! 

I hope you can talk some sense into your DH!

@Future Mrs. W:  Maybe the next time he does that, you can respond with, “Whew! Good thing no one’s ever been murdered in Pittsburgh!”
