Oy vey! Very much feeling the same tensions right now - the only difference is I'm, at least, in my own home. If you figure out a good solution, let me know! Thanks for writing about this touchy subject.


Yeah, like Stacy I'm also interested in hearing others' thoughts - I don't have any particularly useful insights, but it's something I think about a lot. I decided in my 20s that I would insist on doing some holidays independently and have continued that through marriage and now having a kid -- but my parents did the same thing in *their* 20s, so they were a model in that sense. Distance, travel costs, and size of various houses are other things that weigh in, as well. Not to mention the fact that we only get so much vacation time each year, so parceling it out is a challenge.
