    You should throw the party once you get it. A kind of graduation party.

    It’s a great accomplishment. Getting your GED is the next best thing if you don’t have your diploma. Have your husband at least consider having a intimate party to celebrate it. After all, if you never had a graduation party, it would be fun. If he’s still hell bent on not having a party, have a party for two, you and him only. You deserve at least some kind of celebration.

    If you want a party, why does your husband have to give it for you? When you finish your GED, have a nice supper with close friends over in celebration, but don’t expect your husband to throw one for you.

    If you pass the GED test and you want a party, go for it. It is just like graduating from high school. It is an accomplishment worth celebrating.

    Just celebrate with some close friends and family, do the party yourself, you’re making the achievement so it’s not wrong to have a party to celebrate even if you have to do it yourself.

    Go to dinner and celebrate, you deserve alot of credit for getting your GED. Feel good about it and if he doesn’t do something for you then you do something with a friend.
    Congrats to you!

    it’s not proper or improper — it just depends on what you want, i should think, and whether or not it’s reasonable to have one…

    i mean, personally, i’d like to have one in that situation, but other people wouldn’t

    i’d guess that he’s the kind of guy who wouldn’t want a party, so he can’t see why you’d want one.

    all that matters is that you do, right?
    after all, always nice to find a reason to celebrate

    he doesn’t have to- there’s no law requiring him to so, but he should. You have a reason to celebrate. If you want to have a party, but he doesn’t want to put it together, just plan an impromptu party with your friends couple days after you get your GED.

    I suppose whether it’s proper or not depends on you. Is it proper to have a high school graduation party? That’s the equivalent, and it’s customary for over half of all high school grads, so in that sense, I’d say you’re entitled to some kind of celebration. However, if your husband is opposed for some reason, you could compromise by not having a block party, but scaling it down to a small gathering or going out to a nice dinner.

    Good luck, and congratulations!

    It’s ok, but don’t call it a graduation party….you never graduated from school. Be honest and call it what it is…a GED celebration party.
