Re: Married but sailing alone

Facing the same question: boat is virtually cruising ready and we were meant to cast off September this year...... but my wife stepped into this new business venture three years ago, which I am happy to say, is working out very well.

So, it looks like I will leave September 2017 now and she will fly in where ever she can for the next 2 years. But, also I will probably build in 2 or 3 months breaks (i.e. in storm/hurricane seasons), to come home and see the family, daughters, grandson, etc. So that way we can bridge the time till my wife can actually come and live on the boat.
I have a friend who is doing it this way and it seems to work quite well like that.

Re: Married but sailing alone

My wife took to boating and cruising a lot more than I thought she would. So did the puppy. I wouldn't take off for long periods without her. To me it's just not the same. We enjoy experiencing things together.

Re: Married but sailing alone

My original question was if people did it. Not why my wife won't or doesn't want to or if she likes the boat or not. I know why she doesn't want to travel for now. She told me. I trust and know her well enough to belive the reason she gave me is the truth. Will she change her mind? I dunno. I'm not going to force her. I know what I'm going to do and she is ok with it and behind it. I was just wondering and figured others have done the same. Meh.

You nailed it. Perhaps the best thing about a successful marriage is the companionship and shared experiences. You can be anywhere in the world and your always at home with your mate. Now about that puppy....
