I want to go away for Christ­mas, but he doesn’t

Solve your sex, love & life trou­bles

Scottish Daily Mail - - Inspire - STEPH & DOM

TV’s sTeph and Dom parker, 52 and 54, draw on their 21 years of mar­riage to solve your re­la­tion­ship prob­lems . . .

QI’VE got into a ridicu­lous row with my hus­band. He wants a tra­di­tional Christ­mas and I want to go abroad.

We spend ev­ery other year with our daugh­ter and her fam­ily (she has two-year-old twin boys). This year, she is go­ing to her in-laws in Wales — we live in Es­sex — and we’re not in­vited. We will be on our own. We are both in our early 60s. I’ve also had a stress­ful few months with changes at work, so I just want to get away from it all. So I sug­gested a last­minute trip to the Ca­naries.

He shot me down, told me we’re not the kind of peo­ple who do that. Part of the prob­lem is that he loves a tra­di­tional Christ­mas din­ner, with all the turkey and trimmings . . . but he never ac­tu­ally does any of it!

I’m the one who’s done all the shop­ping and cook­ing for more than 40 years. Nei­ther of us is budg­ing. What should I do?
