A woman has earned praise after going on a planned vacation to New Orleans without her husband. In a Reddit post on the popular “Am I The A**hole?” forum, the 29-year-old woman, known as u/Strong-Farm-7377, explained that she had taken on most of the planning responsibilities for the trip, while her 32-year-old husband’s main task was to buy the plane tickets and request time off from work.
However, her husband continuously delayed purchasing the tickets, claiming he was waiting for the prices to go down. Three weeks ago, when the woman reminded him to buy the tickets, he had not only forgotten but also hadn’t requested time off. With ticket prices still high, he suggested canceling the trip and having a staycation instead. The woman, unwilling to let go of the plans she had put so much effort into, decided to buy a ticket for herself and go alone.
When the woman informed her husband of her decision, he expressed surprise and attempted to join her in New Orleans. However, she made it clear that he would need to get his own hotel room because the trip was now her vacation away from him.
Reddit users came to the woman’s defense, criticizing her husband for failing to fulfill his responsibilities and suggesting that he may have deliberately sabotaged the trip. Some shared similar experiences, stating that it had led to the end of their relationships. The post has since gone viral with over 17,000 upvotes.
It is important in any relationship to be communicative and fulfill agreed-upon responsibilities to avoid misunderstandings and disappointments.
