My soon to be husband wants vacation alone

My soon to be husband wants to go on a cruise with his twin brother and we are totally broke and bills are overdue... His brother is paying for the trip and I guess that is good however I'm so under stress and need a vacation myself... He thinks because I went home last year for a week because my mom died and another time when my son graduated high school that was a vacation..... I think that is just stupid... He will not get paid for the time off and that means no pay for that whole week.... We have so many bills... When one of us is out of work and doesn't get paid it really makes staying current on bills a mess....

I agree with you. It doesn't sound like the right time for your fiancée to be going on a cruise. Surely he must know this doesn't make sense! I'm guessing that he just really wants to go and is trying to justify it any way he can. Nobody can possibly believe it's the same as going home for a death in the family or even a graduation. Anyway, how do you think he would respond if you sympathized with his really wanting to go, but gently pointed out that you're both going to suffer from the trip in the end if it happens.
