Husband sparks fury after planning to leave his wife and child at home for a 40th birthday ‘boys trip’ overseas: ‘He’s never taken us on holiday’
- A woman says her partner wants to go overseas with mates for his 40th birthday
- She’s not comfortable with the idea that he’s ‘ditching’ his family
- To make matters worse, she claims to have found ‘flirty’ texts on his phone
- After sharing the situation on Facebook other women weight in and gave advice
A fed-up wife has sought advice after her partner expressed his desire to head overseas with mates for his 40th birthday.
Detailing the situation to a popular Facebook group, the mum-of-one said she’s not comfortable with the idea of partner ‘ditching’ his family for friends – especially since he’s never taken them away on a trip.
To make matters worse the woman claims to have also found ‘flirty messages with female colleagues’ on her partner’s phone.
‘So my partner is turning 40 in May. He wants to go overseas with his boys to celebrate and that he will do something separate with my daughter and I at home,’ the woman wrote.
‘I am not okay with this because he has never taken my daughter and I on a trip ever!’

‘There is no trust and of course I have stayed with him for the sake of my daughter,’ she continued.
‘Please no harsh comments to my situation as I can already see the flaws. Okay yes I get that he wants to hang out with his boys but to priorities a trip with them over his own family is just so wrong.’
Hundreds of women offered their advice, with most suggesting speaking to the partner and possibly breaking up.
‘I would tell him to go… and not come back. Simple,’ one woman commented.
‘Flirty messages are more than enough for him NOT TO DESERVE a boys trip!!!! HELL NO,’ another said.
A third added: ‘I’m sorry but that is not acceptable. And I’m going to throw another spin on it.. do you know these “mates” are for sure going?’
Another woman who’s previously been cheated on offered her take on the situation.
‘Please take it from someone who’s been played a fool, cheated on etc (and he didn’t even stoop as low as taking himself overseas for a significant birthday),’ she wrote.
‘Tell him to enjoy his holiday and life because you won’t be there when he returns. Don’t wait for your lack of trust to ruin your mental state which will in turn make everything worse anyway.
‘Staying with someone just because of your child does nothing but show your daughter all the wrong things with a relationship.’

While most said the man should ‘put his family first’, others said he should be able to enjoy his birthday however he wants.
‘Let him go it’s his birthday! If you don’t trust him. Don’t use this as an excuse,’ one wrote.
‘You can celebrate when he gets back,’ another said.
In the comments the woman said they’ve been together for two years and have a daughter, making it difficult to break up.
