Hi ILites, In UK, summer holidays started for school kids. I told my dh to book tickets to india for vacation. I too need a vacation badly, as i am tired of taking care of my two naughty boys alone here. But my husband refused and said he don't want to go to india for next three years. He has plans to bring his parent here on visit visa next year. He said he will call my parents another year. He says indians here plan vacation to india once in every two or three year as a family. If they miss their family, parents are called to visit UK. Is this true? He keeps advicing that I should learn to save money from unneccesary expenses, while staying in a foreign land. Travelling to India once in a year is an unneccessary expense? Please clarify.
