Hello everyone! I'm mostly just read posts now and then and don't post much myself, but I do need some unbiased opinions on a situation with the DH.
First, background: We got married in August. DH is currently trying to get into med school. He recently got his rejection letter for attending in Fall of 2011, which really sucks but was a little expected, and is now enrolled full time in classes to boost his GPA to try for fall of 12. So, at this point I'm the only one working and supporting us. He works part time (very- like 1 to 2 shifts a month as an EMT, mostly for the experience). Assuming/hoping he does get in for 2012, I'll be supporting us for the next 5 1/2 years. I won't say we're struggling to make ends meet, we have some extra for fun stuff, but not a lot extra. I've had to make some sacrifices for DH to reach his goal and I'm very happy with our/my decisions, until something like this comes up!
Today DH called me to say his friend has an extra ticket to the Kentucky Derby in May and was wondering if I would be ok with him going. I said definitely not, because IMO he shouldn't be going on vacations (to places I really want to go) and spend my money while he's there, while I sit at home working. I'm still kind of upset that he would be comfortable going given our circumstances right now.
Am I overreacting on this? He said he understands why I'm upset, and he isn't pushing it or anything like that. I guess I'm just curious what others thoughts are! Thanks!
