My boyfriend and I are in our early 30s and have been in a serious relationship for two years.
He is choosing not to go on a vacation with my family. I am incredibly hurt and angry about this. He says he can’t afford it, but this makes no sense considering his income and expenses. The trip is three months away and the costs are minimal. It would only require him to take two days off, which he’s said he could do.
I have explained to him how important it is to me that he attends. My family is very important to me, and thus far in our relationship I have cut back on a lot of family time because he doesn’t seem to enjoy it. We have been on two trips with his family, including a two-week overseas trip, and spend quite a bit of other time with them.
