My partner's parents are getting up there in age and have very few years left where they can travel. I want her to take the nice vacations with them while they are able to go.

So you're talking between now and when you two retire, right?

Do you have any similar considerations w/ your parents?

We also have three dogs (two of which are Great Danes) which are expensive to care for (vet bill this morning was $100).

Be sure to factor in extra for care of the pets AND for boarding them when/if you travel. That boarding cost can sure add up. (My partner & I "out-pet" you but, luckily, most don't need boarding.) :)
