I know that men and women think differently. that's not an issue for me, MOST of the time. what is an issue is that my DH's family lives here, across the river from us. so, he can see his extended family whenever he wants. my parents live across the river from me, but i can't see them whenever i want (it's the way my mother wants it, don't ask). my extended family lives far enough away from me that it requires a LONG car ride or plane ride. therefore, i don't see them very often. my parents will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary June 2014 and they want everyone to go on a cruise with them. I have never been on a cruise, don't really like the idea of it. but, i want to go. so, i told DH about it (knowing he doesn't like cruises since he can't do anywhere to get away from all the passengers????). i told him he has over 1 year to get used to the idea of going, because he has skipped out on at least the past 2-3 family events on my side. he says that he doesn't like people planning things for him, and he doesn't know where he's going to be at that time or if he'll have a permanent job. i am so incredibly pissed at him, i am ready to spit nails. at him. we had a disagreement last night. i don't understand his thinking and reasoning. i know he likes to pay for things himself and plan his own way, but this is a f'ng cruise (that we could NEVER afford, even the cheapest one). why can't he swallow his d**n pride and go, to make me happy? since he skipped out on my grandfather's 100th birthday and a thanksgiving in baltimore, MD and at least 1 other event. i don't like him right now and don't want him touching me.
