Woman Goes On Vacation Without Husband After He Waited Too Long To Book Their Flights 


A 29-year-old woman has taken to the internet for advice after she went on vacation by herself, leaving her husband behind after he waited too long to book their flights to New Orleans.

The story starts off with the couple experiencing mild conflict while attempting to plan a vacation months in advance but ends with serious drama and plenty of hurt feelings.

While the entire tale is impossible to verify as it was posted to an anonymous forum, the details seemed to strike a chord with Redditors who flooded the post with thousands of comments and upvotes.


“AITA for going on vacation without my husband?”

“My husband (32m) and I (29f) planned a week vacation to New Orleans (in the US). We (but mostly I) have been planning this for months.

“Back in March, I told him I would plan most of it, where to go, and what to do, all he has to do was make sure he had the week off and buy the plane tickets. I spent the last few months researching what to do. I booked the hotel room, made reservations at places we wanted to try, I made a list of all the sites I wanted to see.

“Every few weeks, I would check in with my husband to see if he had asked off and bought the tickets yet, he would say he was waiting for the plane ticket prices to go down. Three weeks ago, I reminded him again and he said he had got off of work for the days but had forgotten to get the tickets. He looked online and the tickets were close to $1500/ticket. He said he was going to wait some more to see if they would go down.


“Last week, I asked if he had bought them yet and he said no. We looked again and the prices were still high. He said he wasn’t willing to spend that much on them and asked how much money I would lose if I just canceled everything instead. He offered to have a nice staycation instead. I told him I was not willing to cancel everything because I spent so much time planning it. We argued and we didn’t come to a conclusion. I wound up buying just one ticket for myself and when I flew out Saturday, I told him I was still going and he acted all surprised that I didn’t want to stay home with him.

“I am in New Orleans now and he is blowing up my phone saying that I am an AH for still going without him. He was trying to get a ticket to come too but I told him if he came, he is getting his own hotel room because this is now my vacation away from him. AITA?”
