D. A. Wolf: Will Separate Vacations Lead To Divorce?

Separate Vacations – Problem or Symptom?

In my experience, men give themselves breaks from marriage more readily than women. Also in my experience, women are more hesitant to take time off and when they do — when we do — we’re guilty and worried about the consequences of our absence, especially if there are children at home.

As for my husband’s time off, I was so determined never to nag or interfere with his freedom, I didn’t protest. The result was separate vacations for him, and no vacations for me. Yet I have no one to blame but myself. I should have spoken up.

In hindsight, I see that our separateness extended into most activities and areas of our lives. Solo vacations were symptomatic of dramatically divergent values, goals, and expectations of marriage. I also recognize that during those years I was anything but fun to be around: I lost my sense of humor, I was stressed, and I was increasingly resentful of the disproportionate arrangement of responsibilities, which naturally made me less agreeable to be around. With a little time off of my own, I might have been a different sort of wife. With a little time off together, it may have been a different sort of life.

Actually, The Obama’s did something similar this time last year.  The First Lady with Children in toe went Skiing in Aspen.  We doubt there is any martial discord going on.
