    I probably would 🙂 We’ve got our life together, we can miss a couple months here and there 🙂

    I definitely would. And although we aren’t married yet we both have taken long trips without each other. I went to Italy/Greece for a month and a half and then a year later he went to Thailand for a month. Although we will take majority of vacations together I will definitely be open to us continuing separate vacations, its a totally different experience to go on a “girls” or”guys” vacation as we both did compared to a couples vacation. We both love to travel and won’t pass up an opportunity that comes along and never hold eachother back.

    Hell yeah! I’d be game for a week away with my girlfriends somewhere. If he doesn’t want to go, he’s missing out =]

    I wouldn’t feel a lick guilty, either!

    (i could never do a month simply because i don’t get that kind of time at work!).

    Also–we’ve spent up to 8 months apart….so uh, a week? not a biggie =]

    No, I’d feel guilty. I’ll probably do it when we have a kid though. I can imagine taking the kid to stay with my family who live overseas for several weeks, while Darling Husband would probably prefer doing something else with his vacation time.

    I would probably do a weekend trip, but any longer and I just wouldn’t enjoy it as much if he weren’t there. 


    PS – A poll would work really well here…

    @meliss:You think your Darling Husband would be alright going a month without seeing his kid?

    As long as it’s okay with him I’d go. I think independence within a relationship is healthy.

    I sure would! I would enjoy myself too…LOL. I think all girl, all guy trips have a different vibe to them than “couple” trips.

    @Belle2Be: My mom used to take my little bro and I to my grandparents for a few weeks in the summer. My dad couldn’t take the time off. We all did a-ok being apart. 🙂

    To answer the OP’s question… HECK YES! I have (and still do) go on vacations without him. Fiance doesn’t really like to travel and I LOOOVE it, so I will take trips with my girlfriends.

    I stayed a month in Italy while he stayed home. I missed him terribly, but I had a blast and would do it again in a heartbeat!

    I would say no. I would miss my Darling Husband too much, and I would prefer to do something like that with him. = )

    @Belle2Be: I really don’t know. He’s not crazy about kids yet so I’m curious how things will be when he becomes a father. I would think he’d kind of enjoy the guy alone time one in a while though. When I was a kid I stayed for several weeks at my grandparents’ homes for summer vacations and I don’t think either of my parents had a problem with that.

    Definitely!  I took a couple of long trips w/o Darling Husband before we were married, and I’d do it again now.  If taking the trip meant that Darling Husband and I couldn’t later go on a trip together, then I’d probably wait and travel with him.  Otherwise, however, I’d go and he’d want me to.
