When my sister in law was in an accident, my wife flew to her aid and stayed with her for almost 3 weeks while she recovered. She left me with three children still at home, but we managed until her return. I was proud of her efforts to aid her sister and she was proud of my support. When my aging mother needed help, again my wife was there to be of help. Fortunately Mom lived nearby so we were not without my wife. A few years later, we moved to be closer to my mother in law so we could care for her. My wife has always been the caretaker in our family and I have always supported her in that. .

I think Dad and the kids can survive a night without Mom. If the mother is so drawn to aid her friend and the roof is sound and there's food in the fridge... everyone will likely be just fine. Sometimes other people have emergencies.

Is said husband a child himself? Because, if not, surely he can be left unsupervised for an evening with the children he helped create. It's not babysitting if it's your own kid. It's parenting. And if you can't parent unsupervised, there's no time to learn like the present.

Why not? That's what friends do. Hubby is an adult, so he'll be fine AND he can manage the kids (else he shouldn't be a parent/step-parent). I can't imagine why anyone would even ask this. Lots of people are gone overnight, or a few days, to help a friend or family member in need. The people we love and care about extend beyond spouse/kids. Not to mention, sometimes a married person takes a vacay/trip with a friend, and spouse/kids manage at home just fine.

sure. just because you have a family doesn't mean you don't have needs of your own. if you have needs which only another female can satisfy, then you need to go take care of yourself and your girlfriend.

I have. My husband can handle himself and the kids for a day or two. I went to Hawaii with a group of friends last year for a week and everyone was still alive and well when I returned. House was clean, laundry was done and the kids were all fed.

Of course, just because you have a family doesn't mean you can't still be close to your friends. I'm sure your husband won't mind watching the kids, and if he's working a night shift or something just hire a babysitter

If he is a good Husband and Father he should be able to cope with looking after his own kids overnight while she helps out her friend.. Both adults should be able to have some time with friends occasionally. It shouldn't be a major issue.
