Was I being petty?

    Need some feedback guys: My husband and I were going through a rough period earlier this month so I opted not to go on his family's all-expenses-paid fishing weekend on Vancouver Island. I feel vulnerable and my feelings were too close to the surface to go and 'put on a happy face' rather than go and say something I shouldn't. That and my husband's younger brother always makes homo comments as his way of trying to relate to my husband and me. Same tune but old after seven years. My question: Should I have gone anyways? (As a side note husband and I are doing much, much better)

    I don't see why you (couples I mean) have to do everything together all the time. If you didn't feel like going you don't go. It makes life easier, we've been doing it that away for 25 ish years


    edit: however if you didn't go soley based on his attendance but would have loved to have gone otherwise.. then you need to put him in his place.. Preferably in front of the rest of his family.. that's what I would do.
