Ok, my OH's nephew is getting married in Vegas next April. My sister in law has offered to pay for my OH and our son (4yrs old) to go, but not me.
Im the only breadwinner and my OH is a stay at home mum.
I can't afford to go as all my money goes towards our rent bills etc and have buttons left in the bank at the end of the month, so zero chance of saving the required money to go with them. The sister in law knows we haven't got much money. Her husband earns a good wage and recently received an inheritance, so they're not short of money.
My other half wants to go, even though she has said she isn't too keen on going.
We've never been abroad as a family and its not something I want to miss doing with my son i.e. flying.
I just feel pushed out and think its pretty mean to offer to pay for part of the family, knowing full well I cant pay to come. I also feel betrayed by my OH agreeing to go. If the situation was reversed I wouldn't hesitate in turning the offer down.
Your thoughts please?
