A HUSBAND has asked if he was in the wrong for booking a surprise holiday for his wife, which meant leaving his young baby at home.
The 30-year-old man explained that he wanted to book the surprise trip for his partner since they hadn't been away since Covid.
He wrote on Reddit: "We've had precious little time to ourselves as our families are super scared of the virus, won't go out of their house or let anyone in, or are super lax and won't wear facemasks around the baby. Both big issues when trying to leave him for a date night.
"I found a super deal on an international flight for a week away in Jan, the baby will be 13 months old and both families have agreed to stick to our standards of care."
However, he said his wife was left upset that he "didn't include the baby in the plans" and that they should take their child with them.
He finished by saying: "I feel we need a break to reconnect and relax and that won't be possible if we take him."
