Still resent husband for honeymoon
We got married in 2012. In 2011 I moved to Winnipeg, MB, Canada despite hating winter (I’m from California) because my husband, fiancé at the time, landed his dream job that was based there. We planned our honeymoon to be a scuba diving vacation in Belize and put down the deposit for the hotel. My husband is a master scuba diver, but I had to take lessons. My husband also had the great idea to use Honeyfund to use as a registry for honeymoon related purchases (hotel nights, excursions, etc.), which many of our family and friends contributed to. Two weeks before the wedding my husband decided we can’t afford to take the honeymoon and I couldn’t say anything because I couldn’t work since my immigration was still being processed. We lost the deposit and I was so embarrassed that all of the Honeyfund gifts (the gifts were converted to cash). He said we would take one in a year or so and instead did a mini honeymoon where we camped in the Redwoods on our drive back home. I hate camping, so it wasn’t much of a honeymoon for me. Now 8 years and two kids later, we still never took our honeymoon and I still hate and feel trapped in Winnipeg. I still feel very resentful.
