[QUOTE=scarlett_]Thanks. I really needed someone else's opinion on this. He's not an open person and doesn't like to talk things through much.[/QUOTE]

I've never worked for a company or firm, big or small, that would pay for a holiday for employees but not invite SOs. So is it that you could have gone on this trip if you had had the money? But you say he's spending the money to go, so the firm isn't footing the whole bill? I think I need a bit more information here. Who is organizing the trip? Who is paying for the air fair, and who is paying for the accommodations? Are ONLY company people going, or are others bringing girlfriends/wives? Why is he going if he doesn't want to? Is it a working vacation? Does he have a choice not to go? I don't know if I'd be too happy about this either. When I was dating someone seriously, he took one trip over Christmas holidays to go back home. He couldn't afford to take me and I couldn't afford to pay my own way, and he really missed his family, and he was in a band and the band had been scheduled to play a big New Years Eve gig, so he kind of had to go. I went on a trip without him once, he couldn't afford to go with me, though he really wanted to come with me, and I really wanted him to come, it was a purely pleasure trip for me, but I was fan club member of my favorite singer and he was hosting this charity thing and invited his fans to come, it was a once in a lifetime chance, so I had to go. But I don't know if either of us would have been cool with the other going off alone with company people for no work purpose and no really good reason. Though I may need more information before I can really advise, but the bottom line is, if he wants to go, you can't stop him from wanting to go. I say just let him go, and don't badger him about it anymore. But keep your ears and eyes open. If something fishy happens, it will most likely come to light in time.

The boss is paying a certain amount towards their flights and that's it. The boss has use of some accomodation from a friend so they do not need to pay for that. Most of the people going on the holiday are single so there are no partners to bring. The one other attached person is not bringing someone. It is a company only thing. I think the boss is paying for the flights to get profits down or something as to not pay much tax or something. Not exactly sure about that. They will not be doing any work on the holiday it is purely for leisure. He was asked if he wanted to go. I wish I knew why he wanted to go seeing as it's gonna be so awful apparently!
