Wild Love Confessions

Love, Lust, & Revenge
Wife Included on Guyís Weekend
Q: My husband and I are going camping next month with a group of his friends. Itís going to be mostly men as his friends are all single or divorced. I do believe one other woman is coming but thatís it. The reason I am going is because quite frankly I do not want to stay home. When I asked if I could come my husband wasnít exactly thrilled, but I eventually guilted him into me going. The thing is, I donít really want to go because I know they are just going to be fishing and drinking. And those things donít interest me. I almost want to cancel and say Iíd rather not go, but then I feel like the argument was in all in vain. Am I being crazy? Should I just go and try to have a good time? -Lisa, 52

Dr. Anna: Itís okay to change your mind. If you donít want to go anymore, find a way to gracefully bow out. Itís okay to say, ďI made a mistake and Iím sorry.Ē Why did you guilt him so hard in the first place? If you feel alone or find yourself staying at home often, why not take this as an opportunity to develop some of your own activities? Maybe a girlsí weekend is in order! Time apart and some independence can be healthy for relationships.
