I am used to my husband coming home from work and telling me that he's going somewhere, I'm used to him telling me that he's going to places that I myself would like to visit, I'm used to many things in regards to my husband and travel....
I was not prepared when he came home the other night and told me that his friend who recently got engaged would be having his bachelor party in Dublin.
Not Dublin, Ohio. Dublin, Ireland. The other side of the pond.
A bachelor party in Dublin?! What no flights to Las Vegas? Or is that too over done?
I'm sure Guinness really does taste better while drinking it in St. Jame's Gate and Dublin does seem like a kick ass place to go, but lets be honest, these boys are just gonna get wasted and why not get wasted where it'll be cheaper. In Boston. Where the groom is from.
And where we don't have to pay to fly flyboy across the ocean to get there.
I'm not going to lie, I'm bothered about a lot about this. The cost, in airfare, hotels, BEER, BOOZE, you know those kinda things. Even done on the cheap that's a lot of money to spend on a bachelor party, in the wedding or not. We've NEVER been on a trip like that.
How about if one flies to a fantastic vacation spot they take their wife with them! Or their kids and leave their wife in a quiet house. I'd be cool with that.
He said he asked if he could take me but no old ladies allowed. What I loved the most was that he said it to me in a way that I think I was supposed to be touched he asked about me and then say "oh well in that case go" and smile. Instead I laughed.
Cause the whole thing is kinda funny to me.
Is he really going to go? Surely my husband is waaaaaaaay more practical then that.
Now he says this is all going to go down next June, a year away, so I'm not getting my panties in too big of a bunch about it. I'd take 50-50 odds that it fizzles out and they end up doing something much more reasonable.
That being said I'm not going full out into putting my foot down mode. Also as anyone who is married knows you can't really ever put your foot down, it does have to be a mutual agreement. Should he actually get to buying a plane ticket it could get ugly around here.
But I'm reallllly curious.... what's your take on this?
Would you give your blessing? Does having kids or not having kids make a difference in what your answer would be?
And if you'd really like to go all in, what's your husbands opinion? Would he vote for flyboy to go?
I'm waiting with bated breath to hear y'alls answers.
****EDIT FROM FLYBOY***
Talk about panties in a crucnch, flyboy is all worked up. He wants me to clarify a couple things.
This friend was the best man at our wedding, 8 yrs ago. He also threw flyboy his bachelor party, that if I remember correctly was a stripper and some beer at the house they rented.
A far cry from Dublin their house was.
Ummmm I think that's it. Oh and the friend is aware that this will affect how many people come.
