Should I feel obligated
(West Palm Beach FL)
Our son has an upcoming 50th birthday. His wife wants to have a surprise party for him. My wife said yes, we would attend without informing me prior to saying yes. They live 1500 miles away. As a father aged 79, should I feel obligated to attend, Its not only the cost $1000 plus, but the travel to airports etc. in addition to staying at some one's house we have never met. Am I being unreasonable to not want to go?
