He Canceled His Wife’s Holiday without Telling Her Because She Kept Complaining About how Dangerous It Would Be

A man recently asked if he was wrong for canceling a holiday without his wife knowing. The wife kept complaining about the dangers of visiting his home country, so he got fed up and decided to call it all off.

He Wanted to Visit His Home Country with His Wife

Originally from what he calls a “developing country,” it had taken him 15 years of persuasion for his wife to finally agree to visit his place of birth. He thinks his wife had gotten a bad impression of the place from watching “too many movies and TV shows that show my home country in the worst possible light.”

Although he left to live elsewhere, his family still lives there, but they “all tend to be in professional fields .” He gives an example of a cousin who owns several companies that make products from sugarcane waste. “He makes more money than I do,” said the man.

He Felt the Country Was Safe to Visit

He explains that his grandmother and mom regularly travel back to visit family and feels that if it is safe enough for “a middle-aged and an elderly woman to travel around in,” then it should be pretty safe for him and his wife.

“I go back all the time too. I like seeing family, but also everything there is so cheap it is very cost-effective for me to take long vacations there.” So, after fifteen years together, his wife finally agreed to visit with him. The plan was to go for a couple of weeks in the summer.

But after booking the trip, he noticed that his wife was constantly telling everyone how scared she was of going and how she was only going because he wore her down.

And this drove the man crazy, and he felt that he had been putting up with it for long enough. When his wife’s uncle, her parents, and some other extended family came over for dinner one evening, she started complaining about how scared she was of going on the trip.

Her aunt mentioned that they had visited the resort city on one of their cruises, and she had some pictures on her phone, which she showed everyone. “My wife still wouldn’t drop how dangerous it is there and how scared she is.”

The man decided to call off the trip. He called his family and apologized. He also canceled their reservation at the five-star hotel. He got them “a very nice hotel in New York, and I got some tickets for Broadway.” He swapped their two week holiday in his home country for a week in New York.

When he told her about it, she got mad for canceling the hotel and for ‘just’ taking her to New York instead.

She had been “telling all the people at work how she’s brave for going to a third world country, how she was basically going to be staying in a hut. We were going to be staying with my uncle. He has servants. The hotel was nicer than any place we have stayed since our honeymoon,” the man said.

He says that he honestly thought he was doing the right thing since she was so scared of going. So he thought it best to just cancel and go somewhere else. 

“I am scared of heights. If she had gotten me skydiving lessons as a gift after I agreed to try it, I would not be surprised if she canceled them if all I did was complain to anyone who would listen”.

One commenter seemed to hit the nail on the head, saying, “Your wife wasn’t scared. She was trying to get sympathy for being “so brave” to go there. I am absolutely sure that she knew there was no hut involved, and she was actually looking forward to going, but all this attention she could get was irresistible.”

“You should have a talk with her about why she felt the need to barbarize your origins and your family to make herself seem bigger.”
