Wife Wants to Travel Without Me – Here are the 5+ Reasons Why

You’re not wrong to be worried if your wife is planning a trip without you. There are several reasons why she may be doing this, and the most likely one is because she wants some alone time.

Although you might not like to hear it, there is also a chance that she’s planning the trip with someone else that she may be seeing. This article also looks at how you can tell whether this is the case, and signs to look out for in case she has lost interest in you.

Why is Your Wife Planning to Travel Without You?

There are several reasons why your wife may be planning a trip without you. This does not mean that she’s being unfaithful or doesn’t like your company. Instead, she may just need some space.

Top Reasons Your Wife May Be Planning a Trip Without You

As mentioned, there are a number of reasons why your wife may be planning a trip by herself.

Let’s take a look at them.

1.      She Needs Some Space

Life is overwhelming, so it’s perfectly natural for her to want to get away if it’s particularly hectic. In fact, you should give this a go whenever things get stressful – you will come back with a clear headspace and be more relaxed.

2.      She Can’t be Tamed

Your wife may be free spirited so she may enjoy traveling and seeing the world by herself. You’ll have to give up the notion that she needs to do everything with you. Once you do this, you won’t feel that bad about it.

3.      It is a Girls Trip

She may be planning the trip with her friends who you may not like. You probably aren’t aware of this, but there could be a chance that her friends don’t like you much either, which is why she made the plans without you.

She also may not have invited you as she wanted someone to take care of the children.


4.      She Knows You Won’t Enjoy It

Your wife may not have included you in her plans as she knows the two of you don’t share the same interests. So, you may not like traveling with her.

This could be a good thing as she takes your preferences into consideration while making her decision.

5.      There’s Some Bad Blood

Of course, another reason she may be planning a trip without you is because she is upset with you. This may not be what you want to hear, but you might have done something to hurt her feelings.

If this is this is why she is going on her solo trip, it might be a good thing, as she can use this time to time to reevaluate how she’s feeling.

6.      There’s Someone Else in the Picture

She might not be planning the trip alone but with a lover.

You will know she is being unfaithful if she is being secretive about the trip’s details.

There are a couple of other tell-tell signs to keep an eye out for in case your wife is being unfaithful. I’ve taken a look at them below.

How Do You Know If Your Wife Is Mad at You?

If your wife is planning to travel without you, this doesn’t necessarily mean that she hates you. As mentioned, there are several other reasons that could be at play, like the fact that she wants some alone time.


There are some tell-tell signs to look for if you suspect that she is upset.

Let’s talk about them.

1.      There is No Communication

Lack of communication is the biggest sign that she’s unhappy with you. Her feelings towards you may have changed, so she might not want to engage in any kind of conversation.

This doesn’t happen out of the blue. She is probably avoiding talking to you as you may have done something to hurt her.

2.      You’re All by Yourself

Not only would she avoid talking to you, but she may avoid being around you as a whole. This is in line with her making travel plans by herself.

Even if she is at home when you are, she may not spend as much time in the same room as you.

3.      She Criticizes You

If she criticizes everything you do, it is safe to say that she is upset.

A lot of the time, this criticism would not be constructive. She might just be her trying to get under your skin.

Quite a few women go as far as to compare you with other men when they do this.

4.      There is No Care

It’s a clear sign that your wife is upset if she is not as caring as she once was. All you have to do is see whether she’s interested in your personal life, like friends and work.

5.      From Friends and Family

If she is upset with you, she could have told her friends and family how she feels. You can ask people she know to see what they say. They may tell you what’s going on.

How Can You Tell if Your Wife is Cheating on You?

There are a couple of other signs to look out for if your wife is potentially cheating on you. Let’s talk about them.

1.      She Cares a Lot About Her Looks

If your wife becomes overly obsessed with how she looks, this could mean that she’s having an affair. She may want to look her best to impress the new man that she’s seeing. Of course, if she wears more revealing clothes while going out, this could be another sign.

2.      She’s Out by Herself

As mentioned, planning trips without you is a red flag. She may be going on vacation with another man that she is seeing.

She may also be away from the house often. You can probably guess where and who she is with.

3.      There are A Lot of Gifts

If your wife comes home with gifts more often, this is something to keep an eye out for. Look for bouquets and jewelry. It is safe to say that they are not from her friends.

4.      She is Very Secretive

Communication is vital in any marriage, so it is strange if your partner does not want to communicate about what is going on with her life anymore. It would also be odd if she’s requesting more privacy than you two shared before.

She is likely afraid that you will find out what she is doing, or is just plain guilty. So, she could be maintaining utmost secrecy.

5.      You Smell Men’s Cologne

Another sign that your wife may be cheating is how she smells. You can definitely tell what she’s up to if she comes home smelling like cologne.


How Can You Fix Your Marriage?

Communication is key when it comes to saving any marriage. The two of you should talk things over and understand where things went wrong. There could be something that you did along the way that upset her and made her drift away.

You can also go see a professional about this, as figuring it out all by yourself can be a lot of work. Just be sure to see an experienced professional, as you want the best person for the job.

Keep in mind that all the baggage and resentment that you were carrying around will have to come out. This can be messy at first. However, it will help you fix things in the end.

You can also try and rekindle the bond that you two had by planning a trip together. It can remind your wife and you why you fell in love in the first place. I would suggest going somewhere romantic.

You can also fix things by retaking your vows. This will help remind you why you fell in love in the first place as well.

Should You Travel Without Your Wife?

As your wife may want to travel without you, in turn, you might be wondering whether it would be a good idea to travel without her. I don’t see any problem with it, as you can use this opportunity for self-discovery.

In case you do not have the best marriage, this time apart might also be the best thing for you, as you would be able to realize how much you mean to each other by being apart.

Final Thoughts

There are several reasons why your wife may be planning a trip without you. Although she may not necessarily be mad at you, this is usually one of the main reasons. She could also be going through a lot and may just need some alone time.

Also, she may be going on a trip with her friends and might want to do something without you and the family for once.
