My husband is coming homing tomorrow from being overseas. I was offered Suite Tickets to the Redskins game on Sunday against the Cowboys. I hate to go to the game and leave him right after he gets home (I think he will be too tired to go and he is not a football fan) but on the other hand it is the Redskins vs Cowboys, it the biggest game of the season and I have a chance to go. The guys on my bowling team (yes I am female) told me to leave him at home and go to the game, but that seems like a "guy" thing to do. What are your thoughts.

My thoughts are to give them to your FRIEND who is the biggest Skins fan you know (hint hint) who has been trapped in an incredibly stressful month of caring for ill grandparents---and who is coming home for a couple of days to recharge this weekend. HINT HINT!!! LOL Just ask if he wants to go, if he doesn't then either take ME or just stay home with your hubby...ya'll have alot of catching up to do! :)

Unfortunetly the tickets are not transferable and I have to be there. You know that. He has already said he doesn't want to go, so I guess I give the tickets back and say thanks but no thanks. :( It is a sad sad day.

Man...I forgot about the non-transferrable part! This is a terrible injustice to miss out on the BIGGEST rivalry game of the season!! Hopefully we'll whoop their Cowboy @sses on our field like we did on THEIR field in our last game...that's all that really matters, right? LOL

I say you write this one off as a missed opportunity that doesn't even hold any value compared to love. I understand the Redskin/Cowboys game aspect, I live in a subburb of Dallas . Be with your hubby and enjoy every minute of it!!

I hate when people call Cowboys America's team. No one likes them, no one likes any team but their own hometown team. It was America's team a while ago, not anymore. I'm not saying anything towards you specifically...just saying how I hate that in general.

I wouldn't want to leave my husband alone after he's been gone overseas. How long has he been gone? I think you should ask him if he wants to go and if not, give the tickets to someone else. There will be other games. Your husband should come first - just my opinion.

OK, I should read the other responses before I respond DUH! I thought you meant he was gone overseas with the military or something like that. If he's only been gone for 15 days, that could be different. It depends on how he would feel if you went off with out him. Sorry, my mind's not thinking straight today lol

Agreed, my husband means more to me than a football game. I love him and he takes greate care of me and our family. No worth risking it all for a football game, even if it is the biggest game EVER!

My job takes me away from home too but never fior longer than a week at a time and often for less than plus plus I am still in my own country during the time I am away from home. Unless it was extremely important, then my partner would not arrange to be out the night I come home. If the event was so important to her, then I would make every attempt to be home so I could go with her. It many ways it depends on how long your husband has beeen away from home and what he will be doing while you are oupt enjoying the football game for many hours. It is not an easy decision to make and if the tickets are non-transferrable, then talk to your husband. He is the one who might value some extra rest time to unwind or maybe he will want to be with you. If he thinks it is okay for you to go then you can do so with a clear conscience and both be happy. If he wants to be with you, then the final decision will be yous but would you actually enjoy yourself at the football game knowing your husband is at home and wanting your company? Good luck - whether you go to the football game or spend the time with your husband.

I am going to spend the time with my husband. He has only been gone for 15 days but it feels like he has been gone forever. I can't wait to go to the airport and pick him up.

If i was coming home after a long gap and I came to know that my wife was planning to go watch a foot ball match as soon as I landed, i woudl be really upset. I can understand if is is some official commitment which she can not avoid if she is a workign woman, but going to watch a game when i am coming home is not a compulsion. It shows how little she cares for me. I woudl not be able to excuse her.

Men do it all the time and woman are expected to forgive them and get over it. What is the difference?

I would suggest for you to just stay home with your husband. Since he just arrived it would be special for him to spend time with you. He is, I know looking forward to it. I also think that your bowling team thinks differently. For me watching a football game is more of a man's thing than your man being left at home. Ciao!

Isn't it funny how men and women think so differently. That was the main reason for this discussion, I wanted to see which side the woman would file verses the men. I know staying home with him is the right thing to do.

Try to ask him if he wants to come with you. It can also serve as your date. =)

Yeah, I all ready asked. He feels that he will be two tired to go to the game, which I completely understand and he has to get up early and report to work by 6 AM on Monday to report his findings from the trip.

Hi there Bytemi! Well, personally, I will be missing my husband terribly if he's been away for a long time so I will never choose a football game even with suite tickets to be with him. But that's me and I am really not into football and I am kind of a hopeless romantic.

I would suggest you put yourself in his shoes, if you had just come home would you want to be left alone? I can't think of a good reason for wanting to go to football game (no matter who's playing) over spending time with my spouse. This is just my thought on the matter- in the end this is your relationship and you have to decide what works best for you. Good luck to you and be sure to welcome that hubby of yours home in style.

I was wondering why you would even ask -- because I assumed you meant he was overseas in the military for many months or a year or more! But I read down and saw that he's only been gone for 15 days -- that's not so bad, but he goes often, so you won't have much time I guess before he leaves again. Still, I would think it would be OK to go -- would you have to be gone overnight or just for the day on Sunday? It IS a "special" game and suite tickets, not just an everyday game. If you ask him, will he tell you if he really doesn't want you to go?
