I just want to say up front that I know I am probably the one with the problem in this. I guess I just need to hear it to re-affirm it. I also just need to vent. Sorry this is so long.
I am almost 30 & DH is 26. We're both professionals and make decent money, but I do make more than him, which is not usually a problem with H. A bunch of my friends and their husbands/wives who are also turning 30 (our bdays are within 2 weeks of eachother) are all going to Cancun to celebrate our bdays. I REALLY want to go. it's 6 days all inclusive & is $1500 (incl. flight) per person, so $3K for me & H. I could easily come up with $2K and could just put the rest on the credit card & have it pd off in about 2 months. I talked to H about this and first he tried to change the subject thinking I would forget about it. Then, he got upset & said he couldn't afford $1500 right now, so I explained my plan I pay $2k & put rest on cc -- he said if we can't pay for it in cash up front we're being irresponsible. I am all about being financially responsible but in this ONE case - I want to do something for my 30th bday with my friends!!! Before this came up I decided I was going to go to Vegas (my sis lives there) and hang out with her - H decided he "couldn't" go but was alright w/ me going by myself b/c it was w/ my sis. He is absolutely against me going to Cancun without him. This sucks!! I really want a big bash for my 30th.
