One reader said, “Dude is trying to work. He told you that you wouldn’t enjoy yourself, but you just couldn’t leave well enough alone and cost him, and therefore yourself, time and money.”

Another responder wrote, “You begged to go, he let you, and you caused issues. Pretty open-and-shut case here. Hopefully, him cutting the trip short didn’t cost him any business or money.”

A different person stated, “You demanded to go on this trip and then just complained. He was there to work, and you were just making that harder.”

A Final Perspective on the Matter

Another reader commented, “I understand you want to spend time with your new husband, but business trips are for work, not leisure. You probably made this even more stressful for him, dealing with work, trying to finish everything up, and on top of it, you were complaining and wanting to go home.”
