I just resurrected a thread on opinion on this as it's quite topical with me now! I moved in with my boyfriend back in April and it's all going well, he's lovely etc apart from the issue of my holidays. I know he really resents it and I'm finding myself dreading the hols as I can't just relax and enjoy like I normally would as he will be there, having to get up at 6am when I don't and knowing that I've got weeks off. I've said to him that i know I'm lucky but that is the situation and there is nothing I can do about it! I will be spending quite a bit of time in my new school for Sept, planning and sorting resources etc. He has made quite a few 'alright for some' comments and tuts. I think his family think I don't really do much work and am always on holiday, overpaid etc. It's really bugging me and I'm almost inclined to stay at my parents' during the week so he doesn't have to 'witness' me being off! We are going away for 2 weeks at the end of Aug but it's the 3 weeks leading up to that I'm dreading! This will be my first time living with him that I've had a chunk of time off when he's at work. He does earn more than me, gets a car allowance and recently got a 4k bonus but he says that isn't comparable. Arghhh!
