So, your husband won’t plan vacations. What’s a girl to do? Let me share the best advice someone gave me before I got married. Nothing. Do nothing.
Before I got married, a friend gave me this advice.
For years, her husband would say “Let’s go to (fill in the blank with vacation destination).” She would do the research, make the plans, and do all the work for the trip.
When she asked for his input, he always deferred to her.
Then one day, she started doing things differently.
When her husband said “Let’s go to ____________” AND it was a place she wanted to visit, she made all the plans and they would go on the trip.
If it wasn’t a place she wanted to visit, she would answer “Sounds like a good idea.”
And do nothing.
I’m sure you know what happened next.
Nothing. Nothing happened. Because her husband wasn’t willing to use his time and energy to plan the trip.
