Sister's Destination Wedding in October or Parents' 50th Anniversary in September??
My sister (my only sibling) has planned her 2nd wedding this October 7th in the Dominican Republic. She has not planned or asked about planning anything for our parents' 50th anniversary September 9th.
My husband absolutely cannot go to D.R. wedding in October due to work. I cannot afford (we just had to buy 2 used vehicles within 6 weeks...) the flights (600-800/each) for myself and two kids, plus to get a room at the villa she chose is $150/night, and she wants us there 5 nights. My parents have offered to assist my kids and me with flights, and we can share rooms to keep my costs down to basically spending money.
My problem: Do I want to spend my vacation time without y husband? What about celebrating our parents' 50 years of marriage? I feel like the 50th anniversary is something special to be celebrated, but I cannot host a party by myself (I live in AZ and Parents and Sister live in Montana), nor afford to host a party by myself...
What is your advice?
