I have gone many times with kids. Some ended up being more successful than others. But many trips simply cant be done. Not fair to shlep the kids and wake them whenever just to satisfy my travel needs. My kids are still young

Sounds a lot like my situation. I think the key is striking a balance. The occasional trip with the guys is ok, as long as you make sure she doesn't feel left out, and you do some trips that maybe aren't your ideal use of points but make her happy as well.

Something you shouldve discussed during dating. I told my wife during the first date I wanted to see the world and she agreed.
What percentage of your travel is with your wife vs without?

Is this per trip or per year?

Both.

Off the top of my head, I've been away from my family for 1 Shabbos in
Singapore with @jj1000 in 2013
Japan with @AJK in 2015
Lofoten with @Something Fishy @whYME @moish @chaimíl in 2016
Maldives with a brother in 2017

We don't leave our kids behind for a vacation over Shabbos. Let alone I don't enjoy spending Shabbos at strange places.
This definitely limits my ability to see Austraila, Africa...

Way more important things to discuss. This is one of those things that should not be a dealbreaker

Really? I guess we have our differences of whats important in life

No one said it was a deal breaker. I mentioned on a date and she agreed and I've held her to it

Only 5 star hotels and business class. You remember im a DDF'ER?? ;D
 She mainly doesnt like leaving the kids

Same here, and i think a lot of women have the same opinion. It's not so much the traveling, its leaving the family.
